Green Woodworking workshop 25 October 2014

Many thanks to Tim Gatfield, Charlie and Red from The Cherry Wood Project www.cherrywoodproject.co.uk for such an enjoyable morning at Alice Park Community Garden. Tim shared the principles of green woodworking and taught participants how to craft spatulas from alder. The group used shave horses, draw knives, craft knives and axes to practice their new skills and get a taste for the potential of working with wood.

The Alternative Produce Show

The Alternative Produce Show a blustery day of the curious, marvellous delicious and downright silly. Thanks to everyone who took part..next year we’ll be at Bath Organic Garden it’s never to early to start planning your entries.

The Alternative Produce Show Sunday 17 August 1-5pm

The fun fruit and vegetable produce show where odd shaped vegetables, slugs and snails are welcome! See poster and schedule for more details on how to join in, or just come along and enjoy the fun!

The show is designed for anybody of any age who is, or might be, interested in growing fruit and veg, who likes eating food that contains fruit and veg (chocolate and rhubarb cake, anyone?) or who’s creative. The emphasis is on taste and on creativity, not on growing perfect looking veg. Points mean prizes for children who take part, while adults receive a distinctive certificate.

Fancy Dress parade at 2.30pm

Grow Your Own Lunch 14 July

Our last session in the kitchen at St Saviour’s Infant school today – another tasty meal to take home and share with the family. The time has flown by and the garden is abundant – the children and their families will be popping in over the summer holidays to check on their vegetables and keep them watered and all will be invited back at the start of the new school year to take part in a harvest celebration.

Hyla’s Notice Board

The team from Bath in Bloom came and went with smiles and compliments all round for the steady growth of our project. The garden looked lovely thanks to all the extra effort our volunteer team have put in, unfortunately our shy little grass snake failed to make an appearance…  we could do with capturing her on camera.

I’m delighted to say that (founder and volunteer) Hyla was not so shy and arrived with a fantastic home-made notice board – this is just what we needed and will transform communication at the garden.

Thanks Hyla.
