Volunteers from AstraZeneca visit ECCG


AstraZeneca volunteers came back to help in the garden.

They did much needed work to keep the garden looking its best, including repairing our raised beds and put up two name boards, which still need to be carved. 

 A lot of weeding went on, too. We are very grateful for their help and continued support.

Art and watering at ECCG

Cambridge artist and garden volunteer Rebecca led a watering and painting party in the garden last Sunday. Colleagues from art gallery Kettle's Yard joined Rebecca to see the space and enjoy its summer feel. Rebecca chose flowers for Ede's cottages at Kettle's Yard: marigolds, achilleas and chamomile.

Our strong black shed got repainted and the sign got a makeover too. The garden had art exhibitions in the past through Pivotal and we hope it keeps inspiring us and you for a very long time.

Transition party and keep voting for us!


The Transition Feast, upgraded from 'party' because of the abundance of delicious food, was a big success with 25 people joining in the celebrations. There were some new members, including families with children and a little dog.

Anna took these photos and told us that there were great conversations near our new hut, which provided much-needed shade on a hot Sunday.

You can still vote for our wonderful hut until 13 July, it's free and easy. Click here, no need to register
