Slades Farm Community Garden Workday
Slades Farm Open Space in between Ensbury Avenue and Talbot Woods.
From 2pm to 4pm
If you are looking for somewhere to take your dear old mum on Mothering Sunday, (or need a good excuse to get away from your in-laws!), then why not come to Slades Farm Community Garden? The garden is greening up as Spring unfolds. The willows are fluffy with pollen and bursting into green, as are the hawthorns. Some of our fruit trees have started to flower. The currents are just about to break bud and the raspberries are opening their leaves. If you’d like to do more than have a look, we can offer some gentle pottering amongst the veg patches or some more invigorating exercise with hedge planting. There are still some winter greens and winter salads for harvesting, too.
If you would like to do some gardening, we will have a selection of tools and gloves available, but feel free to bring your own if you’d prefer. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear.
