The Bearpit Garden is looking wonderful in the autumn sunshine so why not come along and give us a hand to keep it well maintained as we head towards winter?

We will be finishing organising the compost bays at this work party and clearing some of the space ready for mulching and sowing next year…..

We’ll also be sowing broad beans for beans but also to feed the earth over the winter months too…..
