    • Toomers Garden Centre, Swindon


      from SwindonWeb TV Added

      This is an overview video for Toomers Garden Centre in Swindon. See more at http://www.toomers.co.uk/ The Toomer family left the worked-out mines of the Radstock area to become Coal Merchants. John Toomer set up a merchants business in Swindon in 1850, and by the time he died in 1882, aged 57, he had established Coal Depots allied to rail delivery points in Swindon, Chiseldon, Highworth & others right across Wiltshire. John's two sons ran the business until it was established as a Limited Company in 1900, when eight of the Toomers became shareholders. All coal deliveries were by horse and cart to Swindon & the other depots. As feed had to be provided for the animals, it became natural that this feed would also be sold to Toomer's customers. In 1912 the corn and forage business of A W Deacon was purchased by the Toomer family, including the shop & warehouse. With horse racing establishments nearby, providing feed for the animals quickly became another key part of the business. In 1926 the feed business of Handys, Liddington was purchased for £50.00. Then, in 1933, Toomer's accepted that due to the competition from gas and electricity the coal business would never expand. However, the animal feed business was growing steadily each year, with the addition of garden & pets supplies to boost sales. This is where Toomers then began to direct their main attention, with great success. Charles Toomer joined the company in 1940, and John Toomer joined in 1954.

        The FXU Green Living Project joined forces with the Homegrown Society and spent a day bringing the campus allotments to life. It was a hive of activity with students working together and local growers on hand to talk weeds, watering and plot design. Visitors to Tremough 2014 Community Games who found their way to the allotments also got stuck in to help with sign painting and seed planting - a fun day had by all!

        • City of Melbourne Tree Works : Citywide


          from Citywide Service Solutions Added

          The challenge faced by Citywide's arborists has been to identify the best (and indeed safest time) to maintain Melbourne's trees. Cars, traffic congestion, pedestrians, trams, overhead power cables, busses, staff safety, all need to be carefully taken into account before any trees can be considered for any type of maintenance works. A few years ago, a group of enterprising Citywide arborists approached management and suggested that all inner-city tree maintenance be performed after hours. In a bid to minimise the impact on traffic, transport and pedestrians, Citywide instigated this clever suggestion to provide maintenance services to the City's trees with minimal impact to anyone, thus limiting possible adverse impact on people, business, public transport and traffic. If you would like to work as an arborist at Citywide, or would like to find out more about the company's arboricultural services, go to www.citywide.com.au.

                    from Ian Pollard Added 32 0 0

                    Green Corn Project is a grassroots, volunteer-run organization dedicated to helping Central Texans in need grow their own organic vegetables. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, GCP installs organic food gardens for elderly, low-income, and disabled community members as well as for elementary schools, community centers, and shelters in underserved areas of Austin. We turn unused land into garden beds that provide food, education, and a sense of accomplishment and pride for all involved in their creation and maintenance. Since 1998 GCP has helped more than 160 gardeners and their families claim—or reclaim—their gardening dreams. Our goal is to create lifelong gardeners, so we actively support our gardeners for two years through four growing seasons. Because we return to refurbish those beds for a total of four seasons, we have actually planted more than 640 seasonal gardens.
