Winter wonderfulness

Hi everyone

There’s lots of great stuff happening at the moment and loads coming up next month!  Firstly rest assured the garden does not close in the winter!  No way! we layer up, get the wellies on and busy ourselves weeding, harvesting, building and do lots of drinking tea round the fire in the strawbale building.  Though even we get beaten by the darkening afternoons so Dec/Jan opening is 10am-3pm.  And we will be closed Christmas eve and New Year’s eve.
So week we’ll be starting to get festive with our wreath making workshop

Tell your friends and find us on Facebook and share the photo there.  Last year it was a great day, fun and friendly and everyone left with a gorgeous wreath or two!  And just £10 which is the price of a manky wreath from B&Q! No need to book, come along before 3pm, wrap up warm, bring secateurs if you have them, children welcome.  There may even be mince pies!  Bring along any exciting greenery you might have.
Next week we’ll also be making merry at the Glos Rd central Christmas party Thurs 14th 5:30-8:30 we’ll have a stall outside Room 212 and will be chatting, selling wreaths and this years ‘must have’ gift (a Golden Hill Community Garden calendar!). They’ll be a chance to win a box of our lovely veg including massive wibbly marina di choggia squash and homegrown sweet potato! Come say hello!
