Garden Party

A huge thanks to everyone that came down and took part in the Garden Party Comp last weekend - you can find your score here. You may have noticed we've done something a little different this year and not ordered the scores - this competition is all about having a go and challenging yourself. We hope you'll join us next year for another fun comp. 

This month's garden event is about taking some time to observe, be present, and connect with our playful, joyful, creative wild selves. 
 
You'll discover self-led activities and workshops throughout the day, to restore calm and balance, and nurture wellbeing. These include:

- mindfulness in the garden activities 

Join us in the garden for the Big 

We've got a weekend of spring celebrations coming up this month.
 
The first is a Spring Equinox Celebration on Saturday 24th March,
from 12 to 5 pm.

Spring is a time of new beginnings; we'll be setting intentions, planning adventures, and visualising what we'd like to grow over the coming year.

There'll be:

- creative writing and drawing activities

- gardening/food growing Q&A

- spring crafts and nature games for children, plus a nature trail/egg hunt.

 

Yogi and writer Sophie Lewis delves into Jen Randall's latest film, Psycho Vertical, and the man that inspired it. 


“It was no longer about the joy of climbing, but simply the struggle of it”. Andy Kirkpatrick brought his award-winning film Psycho Vertical to the Royal Institution lecture theatre in central London on the 5th of February.

Garden Wild

Castle Wild is an after school club which takes place on Wednesdays (term-time only) from 4.45 - 6.30pm, for children aged 7 - 13.

The structure of each session follows a natural rhythm that incorporates sharing and listening as a group, playing and making up games to warm up and to hone our animal senses, themed focussed activities such as foraging, bushcraft, and craft-making, and learning through free play; making, building, imagining, observing and discovering the wonders of nature.

Our first garden event of the year is a Wassail, on Saturday 10th February.
 

This Sunday 8th October, from 11am - 4pm, join us in the garden for a celebration of apples!

You can take part in the fruit pressing workshop, as well as apple games and art & crafts activities running throughout the day.

Did you know that there’s a national climbing series for differently-abled climbers? I had no clue when I started climbing and luckily found out from one of the charities I’m affiliated with.
