Busy time at the Garden
We were an unusual venue for the Macmillan Cancer Support world's largest coffee morning. As our community enjoy events which include all ages it was decided the best time would be on Saturday afternoon, rather than the Friday morning. Due to our limited seating area, it was advertised as a "picnic" and people were encouraged to bring their own cups and chairs.
The afternoon was a great success with people wandering around the growing house and outdoor garden whilst enjoying coffee, delicious home baking and good company. Di decided to have a competition to guess the number of tomatoes in the jar. The winner was guessed 88 - there were 87. Lots of photos were taken and we hope to upload them soon. At the last count there was a fantastic £250 raised.
Yesterday we welcomed the children from the primary 1, 2 and 3 and pre school who came along to see what we grow and to sow some seeds in hanging baskets. They had great fun and are looking forward to watching their seeds grow into edible plants.
We are still open for visitors - from the 5th October we will open until the end of the month on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1pm - 4pm.
During October we are offering a discount of 10% on all orders by using the discount code 1010 - this can be done in the discount box of the online shopping bag or by quoting it to us when placing an order.
Another film crew are due to arrive in Coigach in a few weeks time - small scale compared to the Eagle of the Ninth but still exciting.
I am heading away on holiday for a few weeks and I'm sure there will be quite a change in the garden by the time I get back.
