A one-acre permaculture project, The Castle Garden produces food for The Castle Cafe, acts as a venue for events, is an educational resource and is an important local wildlife habitat.

Join us in the garden this Sunday for Apple Day, from 11am - 4pm.

Take part in fruit pressing workshops all day- if you can, bring some apples from your garden and take home some juice (please bring an empty bottle).

There'll be apple games and art & crafts for all ages. Plus refreshments- delicious, hearty snacks made from food surplus, and of course... juice!

The event is a collaboration between the Castle Garden team and food campaigners Feedback.

 

Castle Wild will restart for the autumn term on Friday 12th October. 

The sessions will now run monthly, on the 2nd Friday of each month, from 4.30-6.30 pm. 

Each session will have a theme such as Fire / Earth / or Shelters!

Please book in advance online or at reception.

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 

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.

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.

This season we are looking for two volunteer trainees for our garden!

  • Herb trainee (Mondays)
  • Kitchen garden trainee (Thursdays)  

Work with the Castle garden team, learn to manage a productive and fun food growing project and grow vegetables, fruit and herbs for a commercial kitchen and café.

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