Bedford Fields Saturday Workday

Come join in with forest garden fun at Bedfords. Learn about forest gardening, sustainable food growing, relax, socialise and have fun with like-minded lovely people with us!

We are doing lots of work on the the garden for winter where a few important tasks happen only at this time of year. They are: bed building, woody plant moving, pruning of woody plants, grafting, planting new woody plants. We will definitely continue working on our newly built reciprocal roundhouse. This could include making a retaining wall, making the floor, finishing the green roof, making hazel weaved removable walls and so on. We are continuing extending our dead hedge. Lastly but definitely not last, we will be giving an annual burst of maintenance love to our potted plants in our fruit bush and fruit tree nursery.

We will of course be enjoying each other's company, chatting with the resident robins, and standing round the fire when the time calls for it, eating lunch together and picking a tasty salad together. 

Don't forget to bring comfortable clothes and sturdy footwear, appropriate to the weather. Please also bring waterproofs in case it does rain. Come for as long or as little as you'd like. No previous gardening experience necessary and we provide all the tools and gloves. We also have wellies.

Please note there will be tasty food, hooray, but it is not guaranteed vegan or gluten free. If you have a dietary requirement please email us to specify your needs.

See you there :)
