June has been a huge month for growing and other activities down in the gardens – We’ve had some very busy Wednesday night volunteer sessions, started our Sunday nights “bring and shares” and have hosted several skill-shares in the gardens, with new people coming to learn bush-craft, painting and soon to come – making things with pallets!
All Skill-shares offered for FREE of charge!
As schools break up next week – we also hope to see plenty of kids and families down at the gardens and have lots of events where they are invited to join! Not least our family fun art day on the 13th August – where we will have a fun, messy, arty, outdoorsy afternoon planned with local artists Cat and Wayne.
But the cream on the cake this month, has to have been our new community shop, which has opened at number 2 High Street, (the old Meg’s Cafe). This shop is a wonderful outlet for our excess garden produce and a brilliant place to find local, seasonal veg at a low price, while also show casing some wonderful artwork for local crafts people. We hope to see you there!
We welcome all people of Coupar Angus into the community gardens – they are a lovely place to stop for a rest when out walking, exploring or adventuring with the children and we believe they are a vital part of Coupar Angus’s commitment to a lower carbon future and food independence in our region.
Come and Join us on Saturday 13th August for some FREE Family Art Fun at the Caddam Road, Community Garden with local artists Cat and Wayne. We will be painting a large colourful “Save the Planet” mural for the garden site, creating some eco banners/flags, painting some slate pictures to take home and generally having some messy eco themed fun. Children should be accompanied by parents or guardians and come in messy, “doesn’t matter if they get dirty clothes”. Event starts at 1pm till 4pm. To book please text 07833938536
