Planting Up Weekend Permablitz with “Bring & Share” Lunch - 20th May, 11 - 1pm @ Westbury Arts Centre

Planting Up run a permablitz twice a month – one Wednesday (usually the last of every month) and one Saturday or Sunday (usually around the third in the month).

Our permablitzes are scheduled for a couple of hours but can sometimes go on longer because they’re a great excuse for our volunteer group to get together to tinker around on the plot and generally have a bit of social time over lunch.

Please bring some snacks for a “Bring & Share” if you’d like to stick around for a bite to eat at lunchtime following the permablitz.

Our garden activities are focused on developing the Forest Garden and raised bed planting area using permaculture principles but because it’s early days for our project, the activities generally revolve around developing the soil, planting beds, composting and capturing rainwater.

Everyone is welcome to join in. To find out more or confirm your attendance please contact us or email: info@plantingup.co.uk

We’ll provide some tools, guidance, drinks and a friendly atmosphere.
