Christmas Crafts 2016

 

Such an amazing Community Event yesterday at the Garden – it was BUZZING continuously from start to finish with people arriving from all over Bristol to create amazing Christmas Decorations from natural materials and pure imagination! Or just to enjoy the home made delicious cakes and refreshments in a welcoming friendly environment.
The kids got involved, the Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles, Friends and our wonderful volunteers who all put 100% in one form or another – from foraging to baking – We have a wonderful team!
Big shout out to Country Baskets for the donation of craft supplies, Amphora Aromatics for the candles and essential oils Vegware for the compostable cups/plates/napkins etc and Blaise Castle House Museum for linking up with us.

Bonfire Bonanza

Remember, remember the 5th November and a good time was had by all.  There was a guy, a bonfire and fireworks a plenty.  It was a sparkling extravaganza and we all enjoyed sitting round the old boiler lid, reincarnated as a firepit.  We also did ourselves proud with a wonderful spread of culinary delights. Here is a collection of photos kindly supplied by Martin Hewer.

Sculpture Workshop Held

Turdcrete workshop was Held by Pete on the 1st of October ! : Turdcrete was a mixture of compost and cement. People made a variety of garden artefacts using the mixture and chicken wire for structure. This took place in our newly renovated large greenhouse, a great space for creative projects. Plant wall hanging pots proved popular . One young person created a lovely dragonfly.
