THE COMMUNITY GARDEN @BLEAKHOUSE LIBRARY
As this year's growing season is slowing down, we are reducing our workdays at the Library Garden to once a month, for 2 hours. For times and dates please see our events page. If anyone cannot make these but would still like to meet for a chat, please let us know and we can make arrangements for one of us to pop down.
Sandwell and Birmingham Permaculture Group in conjunction with Bleakhouse Library, Countershade http://www.countershade.org/index.html
and the Sow We Grow Together project http://countershade.org/blog/
We are pleased to announce that we are the guardians of Bleakhouse librarys' Community garden. It was handed over to our group and the Community by Countershade who has recently renovated the space as part of the Sow We Grow Project.
We officially took over the garden on the 8th April 2017 when we had an open day which included
Plant/Seed Swop, Stalls from local producers, face painting, Nature/Art Activities for Children, refreshments, Discovering mindfulness together workshop, Garden walk and talk with fun gardening activities for all the family. You can see pictures on our photographs page.
