Breathing Spaces – Bread for all and Roses Too

Posted on 05 August 2023

Our next Garden Club session at CREW is Wed August 9th from 7-9pm and this month we’re going to be sharing tips about seed-saving, doing some harvest-swapping and making some simple bee-logs for solitary bees.

Bring along any fruit, veg, herbs you’ve grown and want to swap. Book a place through Eventbrite:

We are not doing a session in September but will be back on October 11.

We’ve had some really great sessions since we started, including learning to identify wildflowers, permaculture, increasing biodiversity of our gardens and our guts, how to eat 30 different plants a week even in the Hungry Gap, Awe & Wonder and Abundance. We’ve sown seeds, potted on, done interactive learning and made sauerkraut. We were so taken with the idea of a Gift Economy – building relationships and resilience through sharing rather than economies based on cash transactions – that we decided to gift our Breathing Spaces fresh flowers to Broadwater Community Support Hub, South Farm Road. They are available there on a ‘give-as-you-can basis’ and any donations are for the Hub. (We are also drying some of our flowers and they will be available to buy later in the year from HISBE.)

Our next volunteer morning at Dankton Barnyard, Sompting is Sunday Aug 6th 11am-1pm (last day of the Big Butterfly Watch), and then every first Sunday of the month. We are at Maybridge Keystone Centre every Thursday morning 10.30am-12.30pm. Get in touch if you would like to help us at either site: [email protected]
