We will also be participating in the Open House Festival and welcoming all who wish to drop in and visit Olden Garden.
And, if you would like to do some volunteer gardening, come and help plant lavender hedge. No experience required. Tea and biscuits available.

Volunteer with us on Saturday 16th July and bring your family for a summer holiday activity

Caroline, our gardener, will lead family activities in the Garden. Come along and sow fast growing herbs in pots to take home. Everyone is welcome.

It looks like the heatwave will continue to Saturday so we will need to water the borders and pots. There will be weeding to do and some sowing of biennial seeds.

Join us for an hour – or longer. Coffee and biscuits will be available.
