Our Chairperson on the committee of management has written a poem about the spirit of BCG. Unfortunately, the spur for writing this has been the number of thefts that have taken place at the garden recently. Some people need reminding that community is about helping each other, not helping yourself to fruits of other people’s labour. So please read Sheilagh’s poem, and take it to heart.
Our Community Garden
Gardeners love to garden, Foodies love to eat!
This community garden is a place where both of them meet.
We share information and seedlings
We swap seeds and produce we grow.
We look after each other in bad times
And laugh when the good times flow
We welcome you to this garden
We hope you enjoy what you see
We like to have people come and visit
And stay for a coffee or tea.
Feel free to meander the pathways
Feel free to ask questions and learn.
We all have our ways of gardening
Different at every turn.
If you have not tended or watered
The things that have grown in this soil
Please don’t touch the fruits of their labours
Please leave the rewards of their toil.
Thank you from us all
