Acorn Gardener’s have been reaping the benefits of all their hard work

With tomatoes galore, runner beans, chillies, peppers, onions, broad beans, red cabbage, potatoes and squash to name but a few.
The Acorn gardeners have been hard at work collecting their produce.
They have been using them in cookery sessions, taking them home for healthy snacks & dinners, and selling the surplus to the public.

It’s been a very successful year and continues to be so, we’ll look forward to the pumpkins coming soon.

Working hard to keep those weeds down

Picking gooseberries straight from the bush

In weather like this even mowing the lawn is fun! Especially when it’s getting it ready for games morning.

Picking fresh vegetables ready for tonight’s dinner!


Meanwhile, back in the Creative Craft Centre…

Decorative rabbits complete with their own character



Redesigning the chairs for the Theatre

And that’s just a little snapshot of what we’ve been up to the last couple of weeks.
