The View From Here - May 2015

Lucy introduced us to baby Woody!

We all had the chance to care for some lambs.

We were busy baking.

In the  raised beds leafy greens were springing up.

new potatoes were growing quietly under ground.

We can't wait to eat them!

The Sunflowers were planted out.

and Spring flowers put on a great show

You can see more of May here

Coming Up Rosettes

Carole set up her stall outside The Mollie
during the Green Patch Open Day

doing a speed craft activity

using felt and fabric scraps, sequins and stick on gems.

There were stalls, plants on sale, tea and cakes,
reptiles, goats, lambs, free compost and advice on 
water, composting, growing, volunteering.

We were joined by friends from The Resource Centre

Many people were surprised to find out more 
about The Green Patch having walked 
past but never visited before.
