Bearpit Work Party

The garden in the Bearpit goes from strength to strength, gaining not just lots of attention in the city, but also across the UK and further for it’s effect on a space. Last year we planted 1500 bulbs into the garden and this year our aim is to double that, but before we can buy and plant the bulbs, we need to organise the garden so that we can plant them!! So come along and help us to do just that…..

We don’t need you to bring anything with you other than the will to make some change in the Bearpit and a bucket of enthusiasm! And we will bring the tea……


Bearpit Work Party.

We have listened to you all, as well do and created lots of weekend work parties that you can come along and get involved with! This work party in the Bearpit will see us filling a raised bed, planting out strawberry plants, tidying the herb garden and generally having a good time!

We would love to see you there. remember all you need to bring is enthusiasm and we will provide the rest…..


Bearpit Garden Work Party

Weather permitting we will be holding our first Bearpit Garden Work Party on the 11th January. During this session we will be concentrating on weeding the area under the tree and preparing it for the wonderful perennial meadow planting that is going to happen underneath it in the spring! Inevitably there will also be some weeding and work to do in the main part of the garden too!!

All are welcome, bring gloves if you have them and make sure you have sturdy, and waterproof, shoes or boots.


Bearpit Garden Work Party

Our second work party in the Bearpit will include lots more planting, some marking out of paths and generally having a good time in the space. The work in the Bearpit is not only great for the space, but for the city as a whole, bringing exciting edibles to the space as well as ensuring that the whole area becomes green, lush and tranquil!!

So why not come along and join us? Everybody is welcome and here are no skills needed other than a will to make change happen.
