The digger is back! As is our old friend Mark, who helped keep hop picker running during last year’s harvest. He’s a dab hand with the digger, leveling the piles of earth, and cutting the base into the shelving sides of the reservoir.
Apprentice Euan, and Ollie from the Shop Team, have been on hand to line the sides with hop poles and railway sleepers. They have been making light work of moving them into place.
The "amphi-theatre" style is really taking shape. There will even be space for a pond!
16 tons of topsoil was delivered at lunchtime, but we're going to need considerably more!
It won’t be long before the garden is all planted up and deserving of its proper name, The Sunken Garden. We can’t wait to see it finished!
