July’s Growing Gang

What’s the Gang up to this month?

Saturday 28th July, 10:30am-12 noon.

This month we share our Growing Gang morning with an Open Day on the field which means that as well as checking our planting from last month and weeding the beds there will be a treasure hunt on the field that we can take part in.

We will also be planting out pumpkins and starting our cold frame project so bring all the empty clear plastic bottles you have and see what we can make with them!
