Caldmore Community Garden – Edible Gardens / Wild About Gardens Open Day

Saturday 20 September 2014, 12-4pm

Caldmore Community Garden invites the young and the old and the ones in the middle to come along and savour our garden on Edible Gardens open day on Saturday 20th of September.

Calling all children and young people to help the wildlife and build a BUG HOTEL – bring some twigs, bamboo canes, straw and plastic bottles and help the bugs get cosy for the cold months.

To keep your fingers busy, there are plenty of lavender sachets to make and take home to make that lovely scent last through the winter.

Meet the writer – David Calcutt is starting his 12 months residency in the garden and needs to hear your story! He’ll also be collecting your thoughts about gardens for his first piece of writing.

And last but definitely not least, it’s festival time: Good Traditions will rock the garden playing its folk rock tunes on our garden stage!

Try our harvest and have some homemade Asian food made from our organically grown garden. Tea and coffee and hot drinks available.

We have come a long way to the harvest, you are truly, warmly welcome to share our garden with us!

Be there and stand proud!
