GLENGALL WHARF GARDEN COMMUNITY YURT

Help us raise funds for a fabulous Community Yurt in Glengall Wharf Garden. It will be a meeting, learning and healing space for the whole community.

What we’ll deliver:

  • The cost of a yurt, plinth foundations and a lockable door.
  • The cost of fencing for the neighbouring site.
  • The installation of the yurt and fencing in the garden.
  • Permaculture planting and design for the surrounding area.

Any donation, big or small, would be greatly appreciated. You can find out more – and contribute – here: https://www.spacehive.com/glengallwharfgardencommunityyurt#/.XHwb14HodQs.twitter

The open workday on Sunday 17th March will be dedicated to preparing the site for the yurt. We will be holding a bake sale to raise more funds for the project. Please bring a cake along, there will be lots to share!

EVERY SUNDAY – OPEN WORKDAY

Time: 12-3pm

Come and help us maintain the garden – planting, cutting back the wild bits, tidying and repairing the site ready for spring. 

EVERY MONDAY – LITTLE GARDENERS 

Time: 10am-1pm

A free, self-led group for parents, carers and their little ones (babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers all welcome) that takes place at the garden every Monday. Come and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the garden. Plant and pick fruit and vegetables and help keep the garden watered and full of life. Explore all the wildlife and spot frogs, fish, creepy crawlies and the beehives.

Things to note: Bring appropriate clothes for outdoor play including waterproofs and wellies if it’s wet or muddy and warm clothes if it’s cold. Bring food for a picnic and a picnic blanket if it’s dry (otherwise there are covered benches). There is plenty of space to park buggies and bikes undercover. Tea and coffee can be provided for parents and carers. Toilet and hand washing facilities on site. The site is a working community garden with tools, building materials, and non-edible plants. We make every effort to keep the site tidy and safe but your child is your responsibility so you must keep a close watch on them.
