Thanks to everyone who supported our Buzzbank crowdfunding campaign and came to the amazing secret Garden House, gave us cash donations, got messy during our team-building and volunteer days or donated materials We are very close to being able to complete our outdoor classroom.
We still need a few thousand to finish and you can help us by donating in a number of ways.
Our young apprentice Russell is now a qualified carpenter and will be leaving us soon.
So one last final push for funds. Sunday 5th October will be our grand opening and where we will also be celebrating 20 years of Moulsecoomb Forest Garden Project!  Email us at if you'd like to go on the invitation list.

Our storage space looks more like a place of worship!

The welcoming committee

Despite the rain, we had another great open day. A chance for pupils we work with to show off their skills and other schools to visit to see what we do. For our volunteers friends and families to see their work; a chance for people to find out about our outdoor classroom, woodland skills, composting, bee-keeping and of course a chance to make and stuff your face with pizzas and wash it down with a smoothie! 

Moulsecoomb Primary Year 1 came up in the morning to harvest the garlic they planted in the autumn as well as rocket and basil for their pizzas they made in our outdoor clay oven.

Carly and our pizza oven were very busy all day
