SOUTHSEA GREEN: Winter life at the community garden
Â This week, a poem from Irene Strange
Upon this bright and chilly morn leaves on the trees are bleak
Clouds overhead as the wind lies still to greet the day.
High aboveÂ seagulls fly, stretching their wings to meet the sky
WhileÂ on the groundÂ below, flowers have an autumn glow.
Fruit and vegetables golden and green, luscious berries to taste and glean
Plots of land tended with care, as willing hands work and wear,
And earthworms glide beneath, as snails make trails and as the ground is moved and sift'
We thank the Lord for our earthly gift.
'¢ AreÂ you are good with people? Patient with beginners?
If so, we need you for our free taster skill shops, a friendly introduction to crafts and gardening.
These willÂ be heldÂ at Eastney Community Centre and Southsea Green Community Garden in 2018. We need tutors inÂ various subjects such as gardening, knitting and cooking.
