One of the best parts of being part of a longer term project
and being based in a particular area is that we feel part of
both the local community and The Green Patch Community.
It was lovely to be invited to be part of their Open Day,
we were based in poly tunnel 4 along with
Sean who was kept very busy carving pumpkin lanterns.
Carole was on hand to help visitors
make printed bags
with wind fall apples.
As you can see,
there were some
You can see more photos from the day here

The clay tile we made in the summer
have been fired
and glazed by artist Sonja Wilson.
Don't they look wonderful ...
shh, don't tell ...
we are going to give them out
in December, a lovely momento
of a year of growing - friendships, community,
creativity, laughter, skills, fruit, flowers.
So far, The View From Here has been just fine!
See how we made them

The Green Patch was a hive of activity
getting ready for the Open Day
Sue experimented with toffee apples
Carole worked with the group to create
a welcoming banner.
This Autumn there has been an abundance
of delicious apples, we have made crumbles,
pies, cakes and chutneys.
The nasturtiums are still blooming and
are a great addition to salads.
Our Grow Wild planters seem to have a curious
mix of wild flowers.
Down at the end of the patch the boat carries a
wonderful cargo of flowers.
The ornamental squash have been harvested and the pumpkins
are ready to become both soups and Halloween lanterns!
Bessie's brood are exploring
and free ranging, getting bigger every day
and the raised beds are being turned over,
ready for the next growing season.
You can see more images here.

Inspired by the rich history of the county
and all the delightful autumn leaves
feathers, cutouts and found objects,
the group made a series of prints on
Carole's portable printing press.
They then designed their own heraldic shields
adding symbols for things that interested them.
