Welcome to the new year in the Company Drinks Garden!
.
This year is set to be full of activities for the green fingered and nature lovers amongst us.
.
Due to the most recent lockdown restrictions we will be keeping these sessions on a registration only basis so that we can offer them safely until further notice.

If you would like to join, please contact alice@companydrinks.info to check availability.
.
Our main activities for January – February will be:
– Weeding beds
– Mulching shrubs
– Working on our leaf mould collection
– Turning compost
– Thinking about the year ahead, including planning additions to the garden
– Spending time connecting with our senses
– Enjoying the gradually lengthening days
– Looking out for early bulbs for a splash of colour
.
These sessions will look a little different to our usual sessions because everyone needs to bring a mask for use whilst working, and sadly we can’t offer any of our tasty herbal teas to share. However please do bring a flask and hot drink of your own to keep you warm if needed. And be sure to check the weather and wear appropriate clothing.
