Hooray for spring and the things of spring! Each day new green seedling poke there heads and announce themselves to the world! We’ve got lettuce, beetroot, cabbage, chillies, melons, tomatoes, peas and all sort of flowers showing their green faces in the polytunnels this week. We’ve had some miserable Wednesdays of frost and floods and freezing winds this March but yesterday at last it was warm enough to start planting some stuff in the ground! Here’s to our fifth growing season and it’s a great time to get involved.
Other exciting news is that we are now taking bookings for our latest venture the Golden Club. An afterschool club for year 1 to year 6 every Tuesday in term time! It’ll run from 3:30 – 5:45 cost £8.75 and we’ll be picking up from Bishop Rd School. It’ll be a joyous mix of outdoor fun –den building, nature exploring, veg growing, making, crafting, fire starting, and generally hooning around playing silly games. Kids LOVE our adventure days and here’s a chance for them to come every week! We’ll be running free tasters 12th, 19th and 26th April get in touch to book your place! And we’ve just got our last couple of spots left for the adventure days in Easter 29th March and 5th April so get in touch to snaffle them up.
But that’s not all! On the 30th of March we’ll be starting a fab ceramics project with a wonderful local artist. Happening every Wednesday 1:30-2:30 in the Balehouse for get in touch or just come along if you’d like to find out more!
AND a date for your diary – our lovely Spring Fair will be on the 7th May – write it on calendars now! In pen! And we’ll be happy to accept any and all donations for plants for our plant sale if you’ve over sow anything. In fact, why not chuck a couple of extra seeds in with us in mind!
