July Photo Album - Summer is Here!

the vegetable seeds they planted have grown

Flowers picked from The Green Patch

On The Tiles

We have been making clay tiles

with artist Carole Miles

we collected  leaves and grasses

and impressed letter stamps

and buttons into the soft, damp clay.

We also drew and dotted!

We used a clay tile cutter to make the tiles 

and left them in the sun to dry.

Carole took them away to be fired
promising to bring them back for us to glaze.

A Great Celebration!

Happy 10th Birthday Groundworks!

friends from all over the county

gathered at The Green Patch

the site that lies at the heart of 
our View From Here project,

to share stories of growth and change

and to share food and fresh air

with an organisation and in a space that has
both community and wellbeing at it's core.

Picture This!

In preparation for Groundwork Northants 10th birthday 

we were busy making collages and pictures 

Two of our lovely project volunteers!

to decorate the Summerhouse 

at the end of the new orchard

It was gloriously sunny and not at all difficult

to embrace the seaside theme!
