Arena Community Garden Allotment is throwing open its steel gates to the public offering two exciting afternoon garden sessions at its Heanor Road, site in Ilkeston, DE7 8DY.
Dates are Saturday 8th and 22nd April from 12.30 to 2.30 pm. Both days are a great way to find out about growing your own and plenty of opportunity to have fun. Yes, gardening is fun!
Come and join the Wash Arts team at the Arena Community Allotment in Ilkeston for two afternoons of fun, frivolity and family gardening activities.
Find out about and get involved in an exciting community garden and to see if you would like to be part of it. It’s a great opportunity to look round the space and meet the team -gardener Jo Swann and (not so glamorous) assistant, Dave Wood.
Dave says, ‘You soon feel the benefits of gardening, fresh air and the feel good factor for a start…the kinds of activities we have planned will guarantee smiles on faces’, he ends.
There’s plenty to do and to have a look at, including some wonderfully messy making mud masks for trees!
The Eat the Streets is run by Wash Arts CIC, a not-for-profit community-led arts organisation, based in Ilkeston. It was established in 2006 and benefits people living in Erewash through a programme of high- quality creative projects developed through consultation and in collaboration with local residents and voluntary and statutory bodies.
