Sunday Gardening @ Waterloo Cottage Farm
May 7 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

We are planning a relaxing Sunday gardening session, which we hope will be convenient for those who work during the week!

In addition to gardening activities, we are excited to be offering a free workshop on “How to make a Pollinator Street”. Learn about the different pollinating insects, how they collect pollen and the different kinds of flowers they like. Then discover how to plant for all seasons, so that pollinators can find food when they need it most. Pollinator populations are under threat globally, and we rely on them to pollinate many of our food crops. This workshop will show how we can support these vital insects locally.

Brunch will be available to buy, courtesy of Waterloo Cottage Farm.

We are delighted to be opening Waterloo Community Garden to visitors on Open Farm Sunday for the third year in a row! We’ll have fun activities for all the family, including building a bug hotel and sowing seeds. Find out about what we do at the community garden and how we use the “no dig” approach.

Have a tour of Waterloo Cottage Farm and meet the free-range, pasture-fed animals (pigs, piglets, cows and sheep). There will also be pork pie making workshops to take part in.

A new business, Country Bumpkin Yurts, will be launching on the farm that day, so you can be among the first to see the yurts.
