Garden House, terrace seating area and lawn available for Events
Members and local community groups may hire the Garden House and terrace seating area, and the lawn if appropriate, for Events such as parties and meetings. The booking is not for the Garden as a whole as we do not restrict entry to other Garden members during an Event.
See the Events calendar for available dates. We can normally accommodate no more than two Events (parties or meetings) per week. For information about booking the Garden House, email Evelyn our Membership Secretary, at email@example.com
Spring Gardening day and Open Garden Saturday 18th February
All are welcome to volunteer in the garden – any time 10am-4pm. We will provide materials for children to make bird feeders. Bird spotting sheets will be available. Or come for Open Garden and walk in the woodland. Listen for the woodpeckers. Coffee and cake/biscuits will be provided.
Butterfly garden in progress
Volunteer gardening days have resumed. We are preparing the ground for our new butterfly garden. And the rose bushes are pruned and ready to be fed – a huge thank you to Freightliners Farm for bags of manure!
Join us next week, Tuesday 14th and Saturday 18th February, for half-term family activities. Come along any time between 10am-4pm. Everyone welcome!
Happy New Year!
After the winter break, our volunteer gardening days will start on Tuesday 7th February, and will be held every Tuesday, 10am-4pm. Saturday volunteer gardening will start on 18th February, also 10am-4pm. Come along at any time and join our gardeners, Maria and Caroline, who will guide you. No experience needed. A wide variety of tasks is available – opportunities to suit everyone. Coffee and cake provided!
Thank you to everyone who has helped to make 2022 such a successful year for Olden Community Garden!
Best wishes to our neighbours and local community groups and to our members and volunteers.
And a Happy New Year!
