86. Schools out for Summer

With the school holidays coming to an end we hosted our first ‘End of Summer’ Open Day up in the community garden. Our local visitors were treated to numerous activities, including nature trails, bird feeder making, mud and water painting and cooking demonstrations and tasting. We harvested lots of peas, spinach, salad and berries!

It was great to see adults and children trying new things, picking straight from the ground and eating the freshest fruits and vegetables.

With 20 or so people on site there was a great atmosphere and buzz of activity – It really provided a glimpse into what the garden could be and offer to the local community once fully established.

A day of simple, wholesome, engaging with nature fun (not an ipad or iphone in sight, except for taking the obligatory photos!) – Are these not the best kind of days? We definitely think so! ~Claire Jellemabeechbrae-harvest-day-5

    Hi we would love to pop over with the children at some point this spring / summer, can you let us know if you are doing any more ‘drop in’ events after school?
