Golden Hill Community Garden Spring Fair!

spring fair 2015Join the Golden Hill Community Garden for their Big Spring Fair on Saturday 9 May 1 to 4 pm.

Organiser Lucy Mitchell told me, “This year we’re going bigger and better than ever as it is the launch of The Bishopston Bale House. We’ve reached the final phase of our beautiful straw bale building. It’s off grid, it couldn’t be any greener if we tried and it’s ready for you to come and see. We’ll then be using it to keep cosy in winter and cool in summer and hiring it out for folks who’d like to have their meeting, workshop, or (well behaved) event somewhere a little unusual and totally eco! Get in touch to find out more.

To celebrate, we’ve gotten hold of Pip the Human jukebox who’ll be inside playing requests on the day (anything from Doctor Dre to Joni Mitchell!), as well as Pigsty Morris, live brass and choir music and the always fab Trevor! We’ll have free fun kids’ activities, facepainting, pond dipping and well as pizzas from the clay frog, loads of delicious cakes, tool sharpening, tours, talks, tadpoles and tea!

The volunteers have been busy planting HUNDREDS of seeds so we’ll have loads of healthy and happy veg plants, flowers and herbs ready for the plant sale.

So come one, come all and bring everyone you know to welcome the Bishopston Bale House to Bishopston and eat pizza and cake, and listen to the sounds of music and laughter filling our beautiful garden.”

I look forward to seeing lots of you there on the day!
