All welcome to make a FREE day of it together this Sunday - with an outdoor focus:
Tooting Community Garden will be open to all from 11:00 to 1:00
There's lots to do, from sowing autumn crops to sculpting our bramble bushes (there's going to be a lot of fruit for the Tooting Foodival on 12 & 13 September (click on FOODIVAL in the Quick Links above for info).
Tooting Field Day starts at Sprout Community Arts at 1:30 and runs until 5:00
The theme of this month's Field Day is 'Shelter'.
We'll start off in Sprout making recycled-bottle insect hotels to take home, in this case specifically for ladybirds and lacewings (both these families of bugs eat lots of garden pests, particularly aphids).
Then we'll move outdoors to practice making some family-size 'human' shelters out of natural materials.
Can't take these home, but we can imagine....
