Open Day – Saturday May 26th 2012

The Organic Growers of Bothwell are proud to announce that our Open Day will take place on SATURDAY MAY 26th 2012 from 11am to 4pm. The garden will be open to members of the public to come along and enjoy our wonderful green space in Blantyre Road, Bothwell (next to Bothwell Primary School).
In addition to stalls offering plants (annuals, perennials, vegetables and our stunning hanging baskets designed and created by our volunteers), organic pest control and soil conditioners, refreshments, home baking and preserves, books and crafts; visitors can also find out more about living a greener, more healthy lifestyle. We are delighted to welcome Moffat Can and The Glasgow and District Beekeepers’ Association who will be at the garden to give demonstrations and offer advice.
Face-painting will be available for a younger visitors, and there will, of course, be the ever popular tombola with some fantastic prizes to be won.
We regret that we cannot accept dogs in the garden, with the exception of assistance dogs.
For further information please contact us at bothwellcommgarden@yahoo.com or visit our blog at https://bothwellcommunitygarden.wordpress.com
Members who would like to donate chutneys, jams or other non-perishable preserves, books and/or prizes for the tombola are invited to bring them to the garden and leave them safely in the tool-shed, or come along on Wednesday afternoon between 2 and 3pm or on Friday evening when the office will be open.
Those of you kind enough to donate your wonderful home baking are invited to bring your delights to the garden on the Saturday morning so the goods are as fresh as possible.
The weather forecast promises a beautiful day, so do come along and enjoy the sunshine in our wonderful garden.
We look forward to seeing you there!
