FORAGING FRIDAYS Third Fridays of the month, 2pm – 5pm: Wild food workshops. From wild garlic sauerkraut to edible flower salads, hawthorn fruit chews to elderberry wine, learn to feed yourself for free while boosting local ecologies and biodiversity.

Give Sam a ring in advance on 07890751568 and we’ll wait for you before heading into the hedgerows.
BIKE WORKSHOP Wednesdays, by demand, 1 – 5pm: The Bike Workshop is currently looking for more volunteers and bike mechanics to help keep it running. Days and times and negotiable. (enthusiasm is more important than experience) Come and skill up on bike maintenance and repair! Please get in contact if you are interested in helping with/learning more about bike maintenance.
