Fruit trees in Romsey

I came there with a friend following a map and we really weren’t sure we’re at the right spot, it looks like that:

The dot on the map shows it well but otherwise it’s not easy to see that the bushes by the fence may be of any interest 🙂


I was lost and looking around for signs, and then finally there was one, it said currant bush:

The other bushes have no signs and it’s all quite overgrown and messy. It’s also very salvageable – the site is not trashed, and importantly the bushes are in good health and they have grown for quite a few years now so they can have lots of fruit if we give them a chance.


We’ll have an event to tidy up the site later this year – just remove stuff that’s overgrowing the bushes, maybe scatter woodchips around bushes so that the weeds don’t grow and it looks more intentional. Do let wojtek<at> know if you’re interested!

Romsey Community Garden

The Romsey Community Garden is a thriving community garden transformed from a partial lot which had been cut off from the rest of the house and lot adjacent many years before and had become overgrown. With permission from the city council local group Ad-Lib and Transition Cambridge took over, cleared the space and turned it into a beautiful community area that grows fruit, vegetables, flowers, as well as provides a communal meeting space.
