The new year in the garden has just started!  Warm welcome back to all volunteers happy to work in the winter season!

 This is a good time to start planning the events and activities in the garden, and get prepared for the growing season. That’s why we would like to invite you to volunteer consultations which will take place on Wed 18th Feb, and Fri 20th Feb at 11.15 am. The consultations will last 45min, and after that we will carry on with our gardening tasks.

We will meet in the poly tunnel and there will be a hot tea to keep us warm! If the weather will be very cold we will meet in the portacabin (please visit it first before heading to the garden!).

There will be whiteboard in the garden and in the portacabin where you can write your suggestions and recommendations for the agenda.
