STONE NESS WALLED GARDEN
We have an active social calendar , with an annual Open Day with visitors coming to the garden to meet our gardeners, see the on-going projects and enjoy fun , games and Phil's famous BBQ. There is the end of season 'Get-Together' held in the Potting Shed and Jean Burgess our Project Manager thinks up lots of competitions and fun activities during the sessions.
CHILDREN IN NEED RAMBLE
Each group took part in a sponsored ramble or as we called it the 'Ambling-Rambling-Scrambling' event. This was tailored to the capability of the groups and as we are fortunate to have a variety of terrain we managed very well and raised £100. Children in Need thanked us and sent a certificate which we will display in the Potting Shed. Jean (who is very creative) wrote a song which she sang as we had 'Pass the Parcel'
The new season for the Walled Gardeners starts the week beginning 4th March 2019 - if you or anyone you know would like to join one of our groups or perhaps visit first, please let our Project Manager Jean Burgess know.
We still have spaces as three of our gardeners have moved to other parts of the South of England.

Jean Burgess's delightful book about the fictional characters and 'happenings' in the Walled Garden is a delight to read. She is planning a sequel that we are all looking forward to.
Copies are available from Amazon or from Jean direct, there will also be copies on sale at our various events
We look forward to the start of a new gardening year, it is always so full of promise as each bed is prepared and planted, and old beds given a face lift and a healthy feed from Rosie and Chloe's horse manure.
There has been much renovation work on the terraced beds over the winter, with over 30 sleepers being replaced and the steps down into the walled garden repaired ready for us to descend in the first week of March!
