Well, it’s safe to say the weather has been… interesting… for the past month or so. We can’t fail to notice the blistering sun one second, hailstones the next, which can throw a spanner in the workshops.
But! Between running back and forth from the cozy learning zone and the garden, we’ve managed to plant, wait for it… beetroots, squash, courgettes, peas, spinach, broad beans, pak choi, lettuce, cayenne pepper, basil, coriander, sage, carrots, fruit trees & bushes, spring onions and three million potatoes* amongst a few others that I have temporarily forgotten.
*not literally three million, but a lot
We’ve managed to fill our home-made recycled pallet planter with recycled leaf compost from the centre grounds! We also invited folks along to our experimental fresh tea brewing (nettle tea smells amazing).
But it’s not going to stop there!
This Friday May 6th, 1-3pm, we will have a workshop on growing microgreens, the quick, easy, healthy treat!
We have our home growing workshop coming up on Tuesday 10th May 2016, 2-4pm, come along, learn, and leave with your own baby garden!
We will be having drop-in garden sessions every Tuesday 5.30-7.30pm and every Friday 1-3pm.
Wild Food workshops in local woodland spaces (Garscadden Wood, Pollok Park, Cathkin Braes) are provisionally arranged for Monday 13th June, Saturday 25th June, Saturday 20th August and Saturday 27th August – these are, like all our classes, completely free, but please BOOK NOW as spaces are limited!
