Bonfire and info about Social Saturdays

This Saturday 6-7:30 it’s our bonfire night and we’ll be burning the beautiful bonfire that Bob, Pete and Dougie have built with love, skill and all the manky bits of wood and old sheds that breed on allotment sites.   Please come and feast on soup made with our garden veg (4 varities! and we’ll try not to run out as fast as normal but we can’t promise anything!). Come and ‘oooh’ and ‘aaah’ over the straw bale building – now with new cute temporary steps and a glorious ceiling!  Put on all your layers, bring your friends, toast marshmallows in the frog and warm up round our fire!

Which brings me to this announcement from the lovely Katja about our once a month Saturdays are transforming into social Saturdays …we are now open EVERY WEEK from 15th Nov.
 “Meet at Golden Hill Community Garden every Saturday from 11am for harvesting, weeding, watering the plants in the polytunnel, chatting, laughing, playing a board game or what ever makes us healthy and happy. There are many people who know the garden well to help when you are new. These day are run by volunteers so please if you plan to come, get in touch beforehand I can give you my phone number to make sure someone lets you in.”
In other news the madly mild autumn has helped us carry on harvesting loads of lovely veg like this…
And the lovely sunny half term meant the monsters, zombies etc that came and enjoyed the halloween horrible Golden Adventure day in capered around all day in shirt sleeves. Good times!
