Autumn celebration and volunteer session

Join us this Sunday 18th November at the Wild Walcot garden for a celebration and volunteer session from 10am-12:30pm.

We will be tidying the garden for winter and planting some bulbs for spring and summer next year as well as adding a few new plants.

Weather permitting we are hoping to have a fire and hot drinks and food but if you fancy joining us why not bring something along to share?

It’s going to be a great chance to celebrate all the hard work that has gone into the project this year and make plans for 2019!

Bath in Bloom 2018 award winners!

We are proud to announce that for the second year running the Wild Walcot project has received an award from the annual Bath in Bloom competition.

Bath in Bloom 2018 award Wild Walcot

For 2018 we were awarded gold in the category ‘Battle of the flowers between streets and squares.’ A huge thanks to everyone who put there time and effort into the project over the year.

Simon and Tom represented the group at the awards ceremony where they were presented with a certificate, trophy and a voucher for £75 that can be redeemed at a local garden centre. The money will be going towards plants and materials for the garden and to help keep it looking lovely over 2019!

Big congratulations to Bath Aqua Glass and Walcot Traders for also winning awards at this years event and all their hard work on Walcot street.

Bags of life are here!

On Tuesday 26th June we started our ‘Bags of life’ project at the disused Abbey Gardens Furniture building on Walcot Street. Thanks to a generous donation of plants we have been able to make a start on our living wall – with the plants being housed in donated re-usable ‘bags for life’.

We hope to add more bags and plants over the rest of the summer to create a even more vibrant display and environment for bees and insects.  If you want to become involved in this project or can donate some plants or bags please get in touch via our social media accounts or email.
