On Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th March from 10.00 am until 12 noon, we are opening our doors and welcoming members of the local community into our garden, as a part of national ‘Food for Life Grandparent Gardening Week’.
All gardeners – especially grandparents – are invited to come along and help the children with the digging, weeding and sowing in our big back garden. The aim is to help grandparents and other gardeners to pass on their knowledge and experience, at the same time as enjoying the fresh air and the opportunity to socialise together.
We’re also planting our growing pack which has been sent to us from Innocent Smoothies and ‘Grow It Yourself’ to help children learn to love healthy food by growing some of their own at school. The growing pack contains 32 Sow & Grow cups, compost, a growing guide packed with fun activities and experiments, and a wallchart to celebrate our children’s growing success.
So please bring along your shovels and trowels and get ready for some gardening. All willing volunteers will be offered tasty and healthy homemade snacks and plenty of tea to keep them going!
If you would like to come along to this free event (no ticket required), please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
or call us on: 07754 793644 and we’ll get the kettle on!
