Food and Flowers in the ‘Secret’ garden

Thursday 7th June
10am to 12 noon


Hall Bower Chapel Garden

One Friday morning in the Easter holidays, a group of budding gardeners came to the Chapel Garden to sow seeds in the veg patch and bee friendly flowers in the borders. The garden has been lovingly maintained by Malcolm Ford and Karina Hepworth, and flowers and foliage are often used by the flower arrangers for church. In April a new set of volunteers came in to lend a hand and learn about this beautiful ‘secret garden’.
On hand to help was Kim Warren from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Stirley Farm.

We hope the garden will help show us how to grow fruit and veg in our gardens, as well as helping wildlife from the surrounding fields. We would love you to come to the next planting session in this little haven (and sample some of the salads!) Tools and guidance provided – please bring stout shoes and outdoor clothes.
