With the cancellation of the Bloomin’ Kids workshops, Farnham in Bloom have come up with a few activities that children can get involved in during the school closure.
- Why not research a famous artist online and then try to recreate one of their paintings? Favourites are Kandinsky, Mondrian, Van Gogh and Matisse.
- Or create a nature art piece in the garden, either on the grass or a patio. Arrange collected leaves, flowers and grass to create your artwork.
Creating a seed bomb is a perfect activity to do if you have some wildflower seeds.

A beautiful Spring(1) morning was the order of the day today for the first get together of our Adult Gardening Group for 2020.
To kick start their new season, our regular volunteers hosted a coffee morning to facilitate welcoming new volunteers to the group and draw up plans for this year’s growing season.
Work in earnest begins at the weekend, when John, Alan and friends will start to dig over the raised beds ensuring the ground is in good condition for the coming season. Gardeners of old would say that digging the soil means you start the new growing season with a clean plot!
The Adult Gardening Volunteers will be at the Centre every Tuesday from the 17th March - 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. Anyone wanting to come along and join the group can be assured of a warm welcome – no experience necessary just a willingness to get involved and help support our garden.
(1) Meteorological seasons are instead based on the annual temperature cycle and measure the meteorological state, as well as coinciding with the calendar to determine a clear transition between the seasons.
The meteorological seasons consist of splitting the seasons into four periods made up of three months each. These seasons are split to coincide with our Gregorian calendar, making it easier for meteorological observing and forecasting to compare seasonal and monthly statistics. By the meteorological calendar, spring will always start on 1 March: ending on 31 May.
Use the calendar or list of months to view entries made on those dates.
