Autumn at Slades Farm Community Garden

We have a lot of activities being planned for the autumn and winter at Slades Farm Community Garden including gardening tasks, coppicing and fence-making, hedge-row development and even, we hope, making a pond !

On the gardening front we are extending some of the beds we made last year, and also doing some autumnal sowings of broad beans and onions. We’ve also plans to make the sweetcorn patch much larger for next year.

If you have any children in your family, it’s a lovely time of year to be outdoors, so winkle them out from behind their games consoles etc and get them out of doors ! You could combine a wee bit of gardening with a walk in the woods and then a swing or climb in the park.
There’s a fuller list of suggestions for getting children more involved in nature at the bottom of this article from the BBC :

Our gardening session dates for November (all 10:00 – 12:00) are :

Friday 1st November
Saturday 9th November
Wednesday 13th November
Sunday 24th November

 

We look forward to seeing you there.
