On Monday the 1st of July, the Golf Driving at Combe Grove was closed for sports activities.
For the first time in many years, the grass has been allowed to grow ready for its new life. The grass has already responded well to not being cut for three weeks and is supporting lots of invertebrates as well as large drifts of clover.
Over the coming years, we are going to convert this to productive use and establish just under 8000sqm of market garden, 4500sqm of agroforestry and 16500 sqm of pasture.
To begin with, we will convert the ‘tee-off’ building to office and workshop space and then establish the market garden that encompasses – productive beds for annual and perennial vegetables, herbs, cut flowers, a propagation house, wash and pack facilities, polytunnels, nursery, and wildlife ponds.
