Earlier this year the Green Mole Forum contacted a number of local organisations and schools, offering grants to help advance any 'greening' projects they might be considering or undertaking.
First to respond was The Leatherhead Residents' Association's Environmental Committee, who submitted a successful proposal to provide berry plants for Leatherhead Community Garden.
RHS Wisley's Rebecca Bevan, team leader for fruit and vegetables, inspected the site at West Hill School with the Community Garden Committee. After testing the soil she recommended preparation start now, but planting in March, when the ground begins to warm.
