There is a lot happening at Golden Hill Community Garden in April, for both children and adults, so read on! 

Firstly, they are starting a new Sunday Club for families who have children with special educational needs or a disability. Commencing on 2nd April, 2-4pm, this is a lovely opportunity for entire families to enjoy the garden and engage in outdoor activities together every month. There will be music, games, exploring, pond dipping, den building, crafts and many other sensory activities. Quartet Community and John James Foundations have helped to fund and support this initiative. Sessions are only £5 and £3 for additional siblings. Booking essential.  

In addition to this club, families with a child/ren with SEND can enjoy an entire Adventure Day on the 20th April, 10am-4pm. There will be a chance to make pizza,  which will be cooked on site in a frog clay oven. Activities will include outdoor games, sensory trails, treasure hunts, playing with parachutes and much more!  Avon and Somerset Police have kindly helped to fund this and sessions are just £5. Once again booking is essential. 

The garden will also be running their usual, ever popular School Holiday Adventure Days for 5-12 year olds during the Easter break 11th and 18th April, 10am-4pm. The theme is 'Outlaws, the wildwood and fairy tales!' These days are packed with wild outdoor fun and a work out for the imagination! £26 including pizza from the giant frog. Only 16 places so book early. 

For adults, the garden are now running 'Qi in the Garden!' This is Qi Gong sessions on a Tuesday, 2.30-3pm, fortnightly starting 12th April for 12 weeks. Everyone is welcome for some gentle stretching, breathing and relaxation exercises to a soundtrack of birdsong in the garden. No experience or special clothing required.  

A date for the diary is the gorgeous, garden Spring Fair - Saturday 13th May, 1pm-4pm. Music, dancing, plant sale, free kids' activities, pond dipping, pizza and cake. 

Finally, the garden is open to the public every Wednesday anytime between 10am-4pm. It's a busy time of year with plenty to plant and grow! 

The garden is found behind Horfield Prison on the allotment site just off Monk Road.
