BIG BUILD: Telegraph Hill Community Garden Sat 19 Jan

Come kickstart the Cloister Garden in to the new year by helping build raised beds this Saturday 19th January 10am-4pm.

Our main focus for the day will be cutting the scaffolding boards to size and assembling 6 large rectangular raised beds, which will line the gardens boundary. These will be filled with soil and herbs to be used in the cafe, centre users and Grow Wild.

Feel free to drop in and help for as long as you can or all day.  We have all the power tools and safety equipment needed.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided for all helping hands by the Grow Wild Field Kitchen.

Wear old warm, weatherproof clothes and some sturdy boots.

The Cloister Garden is located behind Telegraph Hill Community Centre and the Hill Station Cafe. Grow Wild are working with the users of the Centre to turn this currently underused garden into a beautiful and bountiful community resource.  For any enquiries please email Ella at ella.growwild@gmail.com

If you can’t make it on Saturday, we do also need a little bit of help on Friday to prep for this (between 12-4pm).

 

Many thanks, your support is greatly appreciated

Local Craft Collective

Pinky Sidhu and her daughter have set up a co-operative of local designer-makers called the Craft Collective.  They run a monthly craft fair at the Telegraph Hill Centre on the same Saturday (3rd each month) as the Farmer’s Market and are planning some evening events too.  The group is fairly small but growing and includes a wide range of crafts from textiles, silver and hand-knitted jewellery, painted ceramics, handmade books, etc.

They are also running

  • a special event in the form of an exhibition of new work on Monday 12 December, which includes a community project inviting people to bring along a piece of fabric which will be used to create new curtains for the Lounge area, where all our events take place.  The exact details on this are still being finalised but it will be an evening event with refreshments.
  • a range of workshops at the Saturday fairs or as evening events.
