Dear OxGrowers,

There will not be a session this Easter Sunday. Instead, we will be running an evening session on Wednesday 24th April from 5-7pm. Our regular Sunday sessions will recommence on May 5th. Have a lovely bank holiday weekend!

👉Horticultural Planners! (voluntary)
You are: an experienced gardener who is passionate about community growing. Each Horticultural Planner will co-facilitate one work party per 4-6 weeks alongside a ‘Garden Host’. The Horticultural Planner will oversee garden tasks and instruct volunteers on how to complete them safely.

What's on in the Garden

The beds have all been weeded by our diligent volunteers last session. Two hundred and sixty onions have been planted, plus a hundred swedes and the front gate has been filled with over thirty wildflower varieties! How exciting!

This week we'll be planting even more flowers, and we'll be transplanting some of our leafy friends still living in the polytunnel out into the great outdoors.
