At the end of every April we celebrate Squash the seed, the gourd and Squash the organisation! Come by to meet the Squash team and help us begin the annual Squash sowing journey – planting many different varieties of Squash and growing them alongside other local gardeners.
Beltane is the ancient Celtic fire festival, the next of the 8 points of the 8-fold year or wheel, halfway between Ostara (Spring Equinox) and Litha (Summer Solstice) and marks the beginning of summer. Celebrations often begin on the eve of Beltane and continue though the night into May 1st. Come and join us in the garden and feel free.
