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.
- 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.

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.

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.
