Help to build our 2018 exhibition.
Every year we stage a different exhibition in our lower greenhouse. Next year the exhibition will be “Gorgeous Gourds”. We will fill the greenhouse with a variety of Lagenaria or Africa bottle gourd.
The gorgeous group is the group of volunteers that will make this happen. The group will design the greenhouse space, reconfigure the greenhouse, grow the gourds from seed and plant them as well as training them into a gourd jungle. Later we’ll be harvesting and drying the gourds than turning them into bottles, spoons and other useful artefacts.
We want to recruit a small group with varied skills but no horticultural experience is needed. We do need people with DIY experience and a ‘can do’ attitude as well as people with various craft skills. The workshop is limited to just 10 places and will meet once per month on a Sunday morning between 10 and 1pm.
