Got green finders? Charlton Community Gardens would like you to join them for their gardening party this Sunday morning.
This coming Sunday, July 3rd, we have our Gardening Party from 10 am until 12 noon at Charlton Station. Gardening experience isn’t necessary, but please bring some gloves, if you have them. We have tools for you to use.
Please join us as close to 10 am as you can because if the weather changes, or the tasks listed below are completed, we go home.
The tasks for Sunday: – general weed and litter pick – water – tie up any climbers – remove acanthus from the pollinator-friendly area – continue the audit of flowering plants in the pollinator-friendly area – prune the Cornus in the station bed – tie in/cut back climbers on the back wall, including the vine – move bark chippings away from base of raised beds – other tasks as identified on the day
It’s easy to miss, but the complex by the river, on the Charlton-Woolwich border, is the UK’s biggest site for artists, makers and designers, with over 550 studios. Saturday will be your chance to meet them and buy their wares.
You’ll be able to see painting, drawing, fashion design, carpentry, photography, print making, picture framing, stained glass making, graphic design, film and video and much more besides.
