Even if it’s winter, we still have a lot growing at our Daily Bread Space. Come to see the spinach, beans and winter wheat seedlings. And also all the herbs!
We had a wonderful day at Daily Bread’s 25th Birthday, swapping and giving vegetables. Many great stalls and the sun was even here most of the day!
Thanks a lot to everyone who was involved and gave food surplus from their gardens and allotments. It’s was so encouraging to see many people being enthousiastic about giving and sharing food, and about all Transition projects.
We also managed to give the giant pumpkin, piece by piece 🙂
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 🙂
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!
We are running art workshops at the Grove primary school with Hilary Cox and Jayne Ruffell Ward to create art works for the raised beds at our Daily Bread Space.
As you can see from the photos below, the kids are enjoying themselves and producing so wonderful artworks! They even went to visit the space and had the chance to smell sage, rosemary or scented geranium 🙂

These inspiring art workshops and artworks would not be possible without the grant we got from the Cambridge City Council. Thanks a lot!
