A huge thank you to everyone who – like these young ladies – kept a spring in their step and came along, despite the weather, to our Open Day. It was lovely to see so many new faces and have the chance to chat to you all.
Enormous thanks also go to Zero Waste Scotland and the Scottish Beekeepers’ Association who came along; and everyone who volunteered their time to help out on the day, provided absolutely delicious home-baking and preserves, donated prizes to the tombola and helped take photographs of the event (thank you Marjory and Ann).
We understand that the inclement weather may have made coming along difficult, and with that in mind we have decided to give you all more chances to come along and purchase plants. We have beautiful bedding and container plants; a selection of gorgeous perennials; native wild flowers attractive to bees and butterflies; vegetable plants and, once again, our stunning hanging baskets designed and created by the garden volunteers. With prices starting at just 30p per plant, we are a fraction of the price of the garden centres – and we are local so no need to get in the car!
We will be open between 2.00pm and 3.30pm every day this week, so do please drop by and visit us. Again, we regret that we are unable to allow dogs into the garden, with the exception of assistance dogs.
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.
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!
