Locally Grown and Dried Flowers

Posted on 22 November 2022

We are delighted to let you know that Breathing Spaces got ahead of the ‘trendy’ curve this year and dried lots of our locally and sustainably-grown flowers.

Even better news is that you can buy a bunch from HISBE Supermarket, Portland Street (until stocks run out), or cute little posies from the TTW stall at the Sustainability Market on December 4 when, if we are lucky, there will be the last of the fresh Chrysanthemums too.

It’s our first year of drying flowers and we are really pleased with the way many kept their colour. Of course we did it naturally with no extra heat, no dyes or chemicals, it just takes up a lot of cupboard space under the stairs!

It will be our last volunteer session of the year at Dankton Lane Barnyard, Sompting, from 11am to 1pm Sunday 4 December, weather permitting. Bring thick gloves and a drink/snack and dress for the weather. And we are still tending the flower farm on Thursday mornings at Maybridge Keystone Centre, Worthing BN12 6JD 10.30am-12.30pm, last session of the year on Thursday December 15.

Many thanks to all our fabulous volunteers, we have so enjoyed growing and being in nature this year with you, and to everyone who has bought flowers from us, covering our running costs and contributing to TTW overheads. Wishing everyone a peaceful and loving winter break and see you next year.
