This autumn we have launched a set of greetings cards depicting the butterflies found at the Triangle Garden. Printed from hand-painted originals by local illustrator Polly Wyer, they are perfect for any greetings occasion, from birthday to a simple thank you.
We have a limited number of these beautiful and informative 'apple bibles' available for purchase. Please read Vicky Wyer's review on these wonderful books below:
My original copy of 'Apples a Field Guide' has been a well loved and well thumbed source of interest and information on all aspects of apples for me, since I bought it from the author Michael Clark around the time of the Triangle Garden's first Apple Day back in October 2003.
Once again you can support the Triangle Garden by buying our lovely Christmas cards, designed by one of our Growing Ability gardeners, Holly Calcraft. Holly has created four intricate and colourful designs on seasonal themes, which we're selling in packs of eight, two of each design per pack. The cards are A6 size on 350g silk finish card, and come with envelopes.
We are very proud of Holly's artistic contribution to our fundraising efforts and Holly is very proud that her designs can help to raise money for Growing Ability, our social therapeutic horticulture project.
On July 17th we held a very special celebration evening for everyone involved with the Triangle Garden over its 15 year history. As well as celebrating our 15th anniversary we were also marking the completion of our Treasured Spaces project, and the first phase of our Forest Garden (more about that in the next article).
We are very proud of our new community mosaic, designed by local mosaic artist Jane Visick, which was installed earlier this year as the centrepiece of our refurbished meeting space. The mosaic is made up of eight different panels each depicting the flora and fauna found at the Triangle Garden. In the centre of the mosaic is the Triangle Garden's distinctive logo.
Our Pollinator's Garden is now almost complete, as volunteers from Garden Club, Growing Ability and our Sunday sessions planted up the new raised beds with pollinator-friendly planting over a couple of weeks in June. The plants were chosen from the RHS Perfect for Pollinators list to provide year-round flower for hungry bees, hoverflies and butterflies.
