Community Fund – Green Up Your Act education – April Update

Recently we’ve been having a visitor to Eco Club who’s been very interested in our raised beds! An Urban Fox has been coming along to forage and digging up our fertile soil. Now we’re hugely supportive of local wildlife at Eco Club but in this case we really needed to defend our food before we were left with just a bed of holes. The first step was to lay down large amounts of dry cumfrey stems, which sit on top of the soil and deter Mr Fox from digging. This worked for a while but as they began to break down the Fox started again. So we decided we needed a stronger deterrent. Re-using two old trellises we laid them securely over the beds creating an impenetrable and fox-proof growing zone!
