Urban Harvest is a celebration of all of the tasty produce that has come from the garden over the year, as well as of the hard graft and collaboration- between insects, animals and people, that has taken place.

It's also a celebration of the autumn equinox.

What's on...

- Garden Cafe (seating under cover if needed) - serving teas, cordials and glorious garden harvest goodies - including cob oven baked bruschettas, and sweet treats!

- autumn equinox mandala and the community poem board.

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
