Have you heard about Dursley’s Secret Garden? Tucked behind the Chantry Centre on Long Street in Dursley is a beautiful walled space that is being turned into a community garden thanks to ‘Transition Cam and Dursley’ and a number of partner organisations- including World Jungle!
Come along to the Secret Garden Open Morning – FREE COFFEE & CAKE ALERT!! See the garden for yourself on Saturday 7th June (9am until 1pm), and tell us how you think the space could look and the kind of things it could be used for. There’s free coffee and cake for every idea shared!
Could you volunteer some time in the garden – and help create a wonderful space for the whole community to use? Join the regular volunteering sessions on Wednesday mornings between 9am and 12 noon (starting next Wednesday 28 May). Each week a different garden project will be tackled, ranging from weeding and planting to building and installing. Come along to share your skills and knowledge, or to learn new skills with a fun group of hands-on, practical people.
The garden is being managed according to permaculture principles, with the aim being to transform this hidden and unkempt haven into a thriving community garden with sustainability at its core.
If you’d like to learn more about permaculture, why not join our Sunday afternoon Introductory Workshop at the Chantry Centre on Sunday 8th June 1-4pm. Cost just £4. The session will be lead by Ben Ward from World Jungle and Laura Irvine from ‘Transition Cam & Dursley’. See the World Jungle ‘what’s on’ section at www.worldjungle.org.uk for details.
