 BMS Pharmaceuticals

We were very lucky to have been chosen by BMS Pharmaceuticals as their community project and eight of their staff joined us at the Edward Kemp Community Garden to tackle the very overgrown and unmanageable composting area.  They did an amazing job and managed to get rid of most of the bindweed and heavy weeds to reveal some lovely compost.  They worked as a great team, some bagging up the material, some filling wheel barrows and moving the compost onto the plots.  They have promised us they will be back!
