Garden, wildlife, people: Wild About Spring

There are all sorts of ways to show off a garden, we’ve discovered at our first event of the season, Wild About Spring…  We’ve had a bug-themed tour by zoologists Petra and Marleen; a talk by garden club leader Hamish to a coachload of community volunteers from Ipswich; a bug hunt; a vast array of baked goods from our talented cooks (pictured above, Erwan’s quiche made with broccoli from the garden); displaying Spring produce on our fabulous honesty stall; sharing the event on social media via Ollie’s tweets from the welcome table – and even showing off the garden in improvised song, by our very own scat man Charlie. A big thank-you to all of our helpers and bakers, to event organiser Jen and to Polly from Avant Gardening who came along to show how you can make a mini-garden on your windowsill using discarded household objects.
