The Friends of the Green would like to invite you to see, smell, touch & explore the new Sensory Garden created in the raised beds in the Community Garden. We recently took delivery of hundreds of wonderful new plants all designed to stimulate the senses and had a busy time getting them all planted out. We would like to thank the Silloth-on-Solway Community Shop for their donation which helped fund the purchase of the plants.
So come along and explore the sensory delights of Lavenders, Salvias, Curry Plant, Scented Pelagonium Lara Starshine whose leaves, when rubbed, smell of lemon, Pineapple Sage & Chocolate Cosmos – the flowers really do smell of chocolate! Plus a whole lot more!
If you would like to volunteer, no experience required, you will find us most Wednesdays ,depending on the weather, in the Community Garden from 10am; or just come along for a chat we would love to see you. More information about our activities can be found on the Friends of the Green Facebook page.
