Castle Park/Chatterton’s Cafe Work Party

Join us at the Castle Park Garden where we will be continuing to prepare the space for later autumn and winter crops as well as chatting about the project and generally having fun.

Then we will move over to the garden at Chatterton’s Cafe on the Urban Food Trail, for a bit of tidying up and planting there. Just a 5 minute walk from each other!

Everyone is welcome and whether you can spare 10 minutes or the whole time, to coin a phrase, “Every little helps”!

Castle Park Work Party

Join us at the garden in Castle Park where we will be planting crops for late autumn and making space for crops for overwinter growing such as onions and garlic.

We will also be adding nutrients to the soil in the form of compost and beginning to support the soil which has struggled over the long hot summer, and sowing green manures to support the soil.

Quakers Burial Ground Work Party

The garden at the Quakers Burial Ground has been abundant this year and we have pretty much left it to get on with it as it was so great!! However, it’s time to look at an autumn tidy up and so we will spend this work party doing just that, and using the compost that we have made in the garden to add a mulch to the soil in order to keep it fertile!

So why not join us? We’ll focus on how to do a good tidy for autumn whilst leaving things in place for pollinators to overwinter in, and learn lots about mulching as we go!
