Yesterday’s Community Garden Open Day was a lot of fun, and we’ll bring you some more updates and photos soon.

Panorama in mid afternoon

More than a hundred people came along: almost all of them for the first time, which is exactly the idea. There was a super diversity of visitors’ interests and we had fun with the many garden activities – something for everyone, including simply chatting.

Winning the snail race

The crowd enjoyed story telling in the secret garden, human snail racing, games and competitions, live music, teddy bears picnic, human fruit machine, cycle powered disco, paper making, garden advice, seed swap, lemon balm tea and a number of delicious home-made cakes and treats.
