We now have weekly gardening, building and growing days to begin creating a vegetable garden which will be open to community groups and individuals who are keen to be outdoors, live closer to nature, learn and share skills and make new friends. Tea and homemade soup will be provided!

Join us as we work together to turn a patch of field into an ABUNDANT GARDEN for many to enjoy! We’re in early days of the project and we welcome input, interest and ideas because there are tons of exciting things that could happen here . . .

We welcome people from all backgrounds and all ages. Whatever your experience, there’ll be something for you to enjoy!

Local produce market @ St. Nicolas Church, Abingdon
Oct 18 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

The St Nic’s local produce and craft market is back! Every Friday morning between 11am and 1pm there will be stall in the little garden at the top of Stert Street (in the church if wet) selling fresh veg, local eggs, home-baked cakes and preserves, plants, seedlings and flowers.

Go early to get the best selection!

Even more important, if you have any produce to sell, you can do so at the market provided you collect the money and any unsold items promptly at 1pm, and donate 10% of the takings to St Nicolas Church funds. To join the happy band of producers, email Gilly Osborne ongho@dial.appleinter.net.

We are very happy to support this well-established venture bringing excellent, incredibly fresh local food right into the centre of town. Please help make it a success!

Green TEA festival @ St Leonard's Church Hall
Oct 19 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Green TEA festival @ St Leonard's Church Hall | Eynsham | England | United Kingdom

There will be our regular apple juicing and apple giveaway. Green TEA stalls will feature our work on Energy; Food; Transport and Waste:
Our Energy Group will focus on our work to make the proposed Garden Village an exporter rather than consumer of energy.
Our food theme this year is ‘Reducing Meat and Dairy in our diet’ and we are collaborating with The Market Garden to showcase alternatives… with tastings.
The Repair Cafe is a new venture: look out for more info on items you can bring to be fixed rather than thrown away.
Our information stall will focus on ethical banking and investments.
The Long Mead Reserve and Conservation Project will show their progress to improve diversity on the banks of the Thames.
There will be games for children and this year in conjunction with the Eynsham Arts Group there will be a Big Draw event. The Big Draw started in the UK in 2000 and is now an annual international event. It has nothing to do with ‘good’ or ‘bad’ drawing skills – this is for everyone to come and enjoy ‘making your mark(s)’. Both apples and expressing yourself in drawing are good for your health and we’ll be drawing apples!
Finally we will have a Book Swap to reduce waste and support Refugees Welcome in Eynsham. Please put the date in your diary and come along – all welcome!

This workshop is supported by funding from Oxfordshire County Council
