2016 Events

Come along every 3rd Sunday of the month to spend some time at Galleywall -- we've got lots happening this spring and summer.

All sessions are free and run 2-4pm (except Saturday June 18th which is 10am-4pm). There's no need to book, just come along!

Children are very welcome (we always have pond-dipping and mini-beast hunt equipment and information available) but must be supervised at all times by a parent or carer.

If you need more information, email us at galleywall@gmail.com.

Sun 20 March: Work Afternoon and Cook-Out

Come and help us build bike parking from drainpipes, and if we have time, do some repairs to the habitat wall. Then share some lovely food cooked on our cob hearth.

Sun 17 April: Create a mushroom area

We'll lay wood chip and mushroom spores to create a mushroom area which should produce edible mushrooms later in the year (and following years!).
