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 🙂
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!
The Grove school organized an exhibition to showcase all the wonderful artworks the kids produced, inspired by our Daily Bread Growing Space. They also came to visit the space and discovered the art sculptures made by Jayne. What a great project it was!
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 🙂
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 🙂
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 🙂

Artworks inspired by our garden:
These inspiring art workshops and artworks would not be possible without the grant we got from the Cambridge City Council. Thanks a lot!
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 🙂
