Having a clear out this spring?

If you've got some clothes that you don't wear/need anymore then why not bring them along to the clothes swap event?...they might be just the thing that someone else is looking for, and you could find something new for yourself there too!

What is an Equinox?

An equinox is an astronomical event in which the plane of Earth's equator passes through the center of the Sun, which occurs twice each year, around 20 March and 23 September. On an equinox, day and night are of approximately equal duration all over the planet. The name is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because at the equinox the night and day are nearly equally long.

COMP WALL SETTING SCHEDULE

During the busy winter competition climbing season our Comp Wall gets used for a variety of different sets and events with lots of re-setting. Please make a note of the up and coming schedule.

 

February: Wassail

People gathered around the fire to sing songs led by the Castle Choir whilst children made recycled musical instruments and helped to hang cider soaked toast in the apple trees for birds. A Wassail is a traditional celebration of orchards, the rituals performed help to ensure a good and plentiful harvest for the coming year.

What's a Disco Soup?!?

The Castle glows bright for its 20th birthday!

20 years have passed since the Castle was born as a climbing centre from its origins as a Victorian water pumping station. Rich in history and architecturally unique, this North London gem that is a community for many climbers deserved a good birthday bash. And wow did we have one!

Like the proverbial pig in muck, I’ve taken a genuine liking to jumping in the compost bins at the Castle during my garden apprenticeship. It’s a place to witness first hand the circle of life as scraps from the cafe and climbers rots and turns magically into dark rich compost that we then use to grow delicious new vegetables in.

We are in the season of autumnal abundance, with harvests occurring all over London’s gardens, growing sites and city farms. Hedgerows are plentiful and trees are laden with sweet fruits ready for the picking. Yet in many gardens around the city a great deal of fruit falls to the ground every year simply to return to the earth rather than feeding people. At the same time as this natural supply is ready to drop, the UK is importing apples and pears from countries as diverse as France, New Zealand and the South Africa.
