A Garden run by volunteers
Our Garden Year runs from 1st September to 31st August. New memberships are available for the current garden year ending 31st August 2023.
Huge thank you to The BIG Alliance for the team of 15 volunteers who came along to install our three new wooden composters. The volunteers hung up our nine new bird boxes – bought earlier with our grant from Local Giving’s Magic Little Grants. They also dug, planted, weeded, moved dead branches and generally made a huge contribution in just one day!
On Saturday 17 September, our garden and woodland will be open to the public from 10am-4pm, as a place of quiet for reflection and remembrance during the period of national mourning for Queen Elizabeth II.
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.
Come along for a ‘Build your own bird box’ family activity. And invite your friends to come – everyone is welcome to join in.
Or come and help Caroline our gardener with
- Weeding and deadheading
- Cutting back geraniums
- Potential potting on of seedlings sown last month
- Clearing gutters and sweeping paths
Join us for an hour or longer, 10am – 4pm. Coffee and biscuits will be available.
We will revive them for our community to enjoy next summer
