Spring Events @ A Space 2 Grow

As Spring approaches we’re looking forward to seeing lots of volunteers, and lots of produce and flowers in the garden again. We have now started sowing seeds in the warmth and protection of the greenhouse to start off the new season’s planting.

During March and April volunteer sessions will be Saturdays between 10 am -2 pm

We also hope to start a midweek volunteer session soon.

There are also a number of events:

Please note: 5th March 2 – 5 Fruit Tree Grafting Workshop – Postponed for now

Events in March:

19th March 10.30am  – 4pm March Brilliant Bulbs in Bloom @ A Space 2 Grow

We are celebrating our first birthday with some fun stuff along with the usual gardening activities we get up to :

  • Come and see the bulbs planted in November in full bloom
  • Help us decorate the glass in the greenhouse with spring themed art

Some of our team like to bring cake, so get to the garden early for a slice!
