We had a sunny and very warm gardening session at our GeorgeIV St edible space. It was so full of dandelions that we could’t even see the strawberries anymore!
After a bit of weeding, flowering strawberry plants finally appeared 🙂
We also removed quite some rubbish.
We had such a sunny day for our gardening event at our Daily Dread Space. After adding more soil, planting, sowing and putting support for the beans, the garden looks so great!
Come and harvest some sage, rosemary, chive and marjoram. Like in all our gardens, they are free for everyone 🙂
Have you seen it? A poster at the entrance of Daily Bread was explaining the story behind the new steel sculptures on our Growing Space. If you missed it, you can fin it here!
And why not also playing at matching the children’s drawing and the sculptures 🙂
As you may have seen from our previous blog notes (here, here and here) we are running an art project with the Groove School, Hilary (art facilitator) and Jayne (artist).
Inspired by the children’s drawings, Jayne designed amazing steel-welded sculptures and we then attached them onto the raised beds. We had to empty the raided beds to do so! It was a hard work but as you can see from the photos, it was worth it 🙂
There will be soon a poster at Daily Bread explaining the story of this project.
Cute bug, bird and worm:
Leaves, roots and tomatoes (yes they are! The inside of tomatoes):
This project was the supported by the Cambridge City Council Public Art Grant.
Third and last week of the art workshops! The kids made and painted giant leaves. I am wondering which plants of our growing space inspired them for this great work 🙂
Thanks so much to Hilary for doing these workshops at the Grove school and to the Cambridge City Council for giving us a grant for this project!
Hilary went back to the school and with the kids created a very impressive map of their journey from the Grove School to our Growing Space at Daily Bread. It is wonderful to see so many creative hands at work 🙂
Now that cold nights are back, we harvested the last green cherry tomatoes to make some jam.
It was great to see the space is still looking really good! If you pass by, please help yourself with herbs and try the lemon scented geranium, it is just wonderful 🙂
We had a great time for our gardening workshop on Friday at our Daily Bread Space, harvesting the wheat, adding canes to support the plants and planting broccolis and chard for this winter.
Herbs are growing wonderfully well and we should have cherry tomatoes soon!
