Plant shop, coffees, cakes, veg stall, kids games, breakfast and lunch AND skill building volunteering...
The new Saturday opening hours are 9am - 4pm and we are open to the public.
Volunteer day added
Every Saturday, we will be working with Mike in the garden 10am - 12pm. The two hours will focus on a particular skill, technique or aspect of the garden. From cleaning and sharpening tools to harvesting tomatoes and basil. The first session, this Saturday 21st May, will be part of our Community Compost scheme and it will involve lots of worms, hopefully! Once the 2 hours is up you will be welcome to stay and practice until the garden shuts at 4pm. To find out more and what will be covered each week, sign up to our volunteering page via our website and join the website groups.
Brand new plant shop
This month we launched the opening of our new plant shop. We currently have lots of chillies, raspberries, coriander, borage, chive and tomato plants for sale... and lots more coming soon too! We also have some lovely hanging baskets for sale.
The shop will continue to be updated with seasonal herbs and plants throughout the year, so make sure to pop in and say hello, there will always be someone on hand to help talk you through our selection of plants and give you advice on how to grow them at home.
The plant shop will be open alongside our veg stall, where you can collect your pre-ordered veg boxes or buy some of our fresh produce.
Breakfast served from 9am
Starting 4th June we will be serving hot breakfast food from our brand new fire pit each Saturday morning. This will be alongside cakes and coffees from Grounded MCR, who serve up the best sweet treats and beverages on their little yellow bike. You can't miss them and you wouldn't want to!
Lunch options will continue to be served until 4pm.
Let's Get Muddy - FREE Kids Workshops Saturday mornings until 11th June
Annie will be continuing to run free kids play sessions in The Frog House each Saturday morning (with the exception of 28th May).
Let your little ones sing, dance, tell stories, explore the garden and get crafty in Platt Fields Market Garden. The sessions are free but as always, donations are welcome.
