Rebuilding the roundhouse

Ready for rebuild

Ready for rebuild

We are excited to finally get around to rebuilding the roundhouse that we built at the old garden behind the Cwm Harry compost factory on the Vastre estate, It was designed by Ian Watt and Steve Jones, with technical help from Clive Numan and Ritchie Stephenson. Is built by a team of volunteers and it helped attract a lot of attention to the garden as well as allowing us involve lots of volunteers. One of the main volunteers of the first build was David Thomas, who is going to be leading on the rebuild. He is going to be blogging on this site about his progress on the build and will be inviting people to come along and get involved at appropriate moments, so stay tuned for updates.
