Right I’m back off my holiday and a little horrified by the weather but it takes more than an icy wind to stop us up at the Golden Hill. We’ve lettuce, sweet peas, radish, spinach, beetroot, broadbeans and more coming up in the polytunnels. People have been busy whilst I was away and it was great to see more new beds springing up, the big mound is also ready for epic willow planting and new area nearly ready for little kids -and the young at heart- to have good dig around.
More good news is our Brambles to Broccoli workshop for 7th April has sold out (whoop!) and it’s time to start thinking the next event – the Spring Fair! Last year over 500 people braved icy winds so surely the weather gods owe us sunshine for this one weather. Over 50 volunteers who helped make the last fair fantastic; baking cakes, singing, making teas and helping on stalls. So I’m hoping you guys will step up again and make it another fabulous day. It’ll be 1pm-4pm 11th May so pop the date in your diary if you haven’t already. If you’ve any fun ideas for a kids activity or know any musicians or story tellers who might like to get involved then please please please let me know. Also if you’d like to be part of organising any aspect of event then get in touch.
In the next update – more info on us selling seedlings and compost – watch this space!
See you the garden!
