To widen our range of workshops and activities, to offer cooking classes and open a community cafe, supply locally grown fruit, veg, eggs

New stretch target

We would like to expand the workshops we offer by including woodworkin, candle making, pottery, soap making. All materials will come from the garden where necessary ie flowers for dyeing, honey for soaps and candles, card making classes and flower arranging. We would also like to be able to have a new unit in which we would have a cafe again offering food grown and produced at the garden, fresh salads, our freshly laid eggs from our chickens, to offer cooking classes for those who would like to learn healthy living and healthy eating. To hold further workshops for the many young children who attend the garden on a weekly basis. To bring the community together 

Shepway chariots took on half an acre of disused, fly Tipped land, and aimed to transform this land in to a community garden and wildlife corner offering a platform for all to come along and learn about wildlife, environment, recycling and encourage an active and healthy lifestyle whilst reducing social isolatio. We hold weekly fun workshops for families and residents to come along and join in. We hold a coffee and friendship morning on Thursdays, as well as organising Easter and Summer events, community picnics, community litter picks and we put on a free Christmas dinner for local elderly residents with produce grown at the garden.
