We say farewell and best of luck to our Head Gardener, Josh, who is leaving us for an exciting new adventure in Portugal. Josh has loved his time at Rockaway where he's met some inspiring people and worked with some wonderful volunteers to help shape a beautifully-evolving space. The beginnings of our wildflower meadow are underway, water systems are ready to be developed, and access to and around the garden is improving daily...it's exciting to think what the future holds. So, it's goodbye from Josh for now, but expect to see his face in the garden when he's back in the country, but this time as a volunteer!
You can still follow us on Instagram @rockaway_forest_garden for weekly news. Plus our video updates will continue to capture the garden's progress throughout the seasons and provide a record of its continuing development.
If you'd like to be involved with this project, we're always keen to hear from people with a love of gardening, or anyone who would like to learn and give it a go. For more info, please get in touch below.
Our crowdfunder is still going and we're always really grateful for any donations, whether it's plants, seedlings, trees, garden tools or a couple of quid. So, thank you for anything you can donate. Everything we receive helps our garden grow!
