If you're a member you can obviously visit the garden when you want to. These are times when you are likely to bump into other gardeners and garden organisers will be there to help show your around and answer questions.

Friday meetups attract a regular crowd and are a good opportunity to garden in company and learn a few things.

Sessions marked with ** will have someone who can provide advice and direction on Communal Crew activities. Members who have not yet visited should come down on one of these days to meet the garden (and a few gardeners) and get shown around.

If there's a time you're available to spend time at the garden and you want company, let us know.

BookingYou can book here now!

Klezmeritis
We'll be getting together for a community dance where we'll be treated to amazing music from Klezmeritis and Bohemian Nights performing a mix of Gypsy, Klezmer, European, jazz and Middle Eastern music. Led by Ernie Gruner on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, they also feature Phil Carroll on accordion, ney and vocals, Ron Hansen on double bass and experienced dance-caller Audrey Fine, who will teach everyone the dance steps (no previous experience needed!). There will be line dances, square dances, circle dances and more.

While they're playing, we'll be dancing, eating, sipping, talking all things gardening and generally having a great time. 

Save the date, invite your friends, have a bit of fun and support your garden!

There will be no weeding or compost turning at this event.
