If your garden or window boxes could do with brightening up, Charlton Community Gardens is offering you the chance to pick up some new plants and to get a spot of exercise at the same time.
The group traditionally ran a plant sale at Charlton station each year, but during last year’s lockdown opted to hold it from people’s from gardens instead. It was such a hit, the group is doing the same again this year.
So this Thursday evening, you’ll be able to pick up plants from front gardens on Wyndcliff Road, Sandtoft Road, Inverine Road and Elliscombe Road. It starts at 5.30pm, and you’ll be able to pay for your plants using honesty boxes or the group’s JustGiving page.
Charlton Community Gardens are keeping in touch this autumn with a ‘Takeaway’ bag.
Children, with a little help, can enjoy these activities at home.
– Plant a bulb in a decorated jam jar
– Make and colour a Halloween mask
– Make a plastic flower to put in the jam jar
– Enjoy some quizzes and word searches
Collect your free bag from our Cafe Orchard (Community Orchard) – next to the Old Cottage Coffee Shop in Charlton Park on Thursday October 29th between 10.00 and 12.00. Children must bring an adult with them.
Please email us to book your bag – your child’s age and gender would be helpful: charltoncommunitygardens[at]gmail.com.
