We're advertising for this year's garden trainees. Check out the details on our blog!

This season we are looking for two volunteer trainees for our garden! Herb trainee (Mondays) Kitchen garden trainee (Thursdays) Work with the Castle garden team, learn to manage a productive and fun food growing project and grow vegetables, fruit and herbs for a commercial kitchen and café.

Our first garden event of the year is a Wassail.

We’ll wake up the trees from their winter slumber. With our cups full o’ hot cordial and mulled cider, we’ll raise a toast to the trees and the changing seasons. And look ahead to a new year of growth - a buzzing, fluttering, wriggling, chirping, hopping garden - and a plentiful harvest.

2.30 - 4pm Craft activities for children and families...
Making ‘Wassailing’ instruments and garden leaf night lights* in Training Room 3.

4 - 4.30pm Bonfire, music and hot garden fruit cordials

4.30 - 5.30pm Wassail for the garden’s fruit trees
Apple Orchard Wassailing is a ritual to invite a good harvest for the coming year.

5.30 - 6.30pm Fireside music, and mulled cider!
Also if you’d like to, share songs, poems and stories around the fire.

Please sign in at reception when arriving for this event. Those signed in as visitors are not permitted to climb.

* Free, drop-in workshop (£2 suggested contribution towards materials)
