Every Wednesday the acre is open to all those who want to find out about the project and see if they would benefit from coming along.
The activities that we get involved in are very varied and often depend upon the time of the year. Some of the activities we’ve got up to in the past are putting in a new pond, establishing vegetable beds, planting willow hedges, planting bulbs, and tending fruit orchards. It can vary week to week depending on the weather and the season but it is always fun!
No horticultural knowledge is necessary to come along (many of us are self confessed novices!). It’s just an opportunity to spend some time in nature on a fulfilling project together.
Most importantly there is always plenty of refreshments and opportunity to talk together over a hot cup of tea and some cake.
Before attending a Wednesday session please email email@example.com so we are ready to welcome you to the acre, we look forward to seeing you soon!
Please take a read of our weekly blog to find out more about what we get up to…
Every week the acre looks even more stunning as flowers burst open, their dazzling array of colours vividly contrasting with the greenness of the well watered trees and grasses.
Having had consistently very wet days three days in a row we can count ourselves lucky as the rain stayed away on our ‘Welcome Wednesday’ until after lunch
The view of the meadow now is stunning with a sea of white and yellow interspersed with a few red poppies with lots of buttercups highlighted against the bronze fennel.
What a great turnout we had on Wednesday for a fantastic day of achievement - we're creating a garden that will be a joy to be in this summer!
What a day! No hiding in greenhouses today as the glorious sunshine bathed the acre in its warm rays, highlighting the beautiful colours that are beginning to emerge all around us.
Black clouds hovered over the acre today, finding us hunkering down in the workshop cabin whilst outside the pond was naturally filled as the clouds emptied.
So many things happening on the acre in the past week it seems as if we’re competing with the spring flowers to come to bloom!
Next day saw the Wednesday crew role up their sleeves and really get stuck into the garden. Don was soon busy weeding one of our beds and planting some of the flowers that Nick had kindly donated from his garden and now we only have one bed in urgent need of weeding.
The acre is beginning to look quite glorious. Marianne and Sarah went plant shopping and the " Madge Green Bee Bed " is really taking shape.
A noticeable feature has moved location as our greenhouse now sits proudly on its new base.
