We are very pleased to receive a grant from Local Giving’s Magic Little Grants to create a wildlife pond. The pond will promote sustainability and encourage species diversity, using harvested water, with plants that clean and filter it. Join our volunteers on Tuesdays, to help create the pond.

Thank you to Tree Matters for donating the bark. It was scooped up by volunteers and taken into Olden Garden and will be spread on our paths and steps.
‘Little Explorers’ – the mini garden club for children – continues to grow in Olden Garden – in all senses! It welcomes local families with children, especially those who don’t have access to their own garden.
It is working on soil improvement in the veg beds and thinking about fox deterrents, as their digging is a problem for veg growing.
Gardening experience is not necessary.
Or come for Open Garden, walk in the woodland and learn more about us.
Coffee and cake/biscuits will be provided.
