Urban Gardening, Shadow Puppets & More!

Join us this Monday 27th July at 3 pm for our last Live Virtual Dragon Café broadcast before the August break (then available at any time on YouTube). There’ll be a menu of creative and wellbeing delights including a Shadow Puppet Workshop. Something to entertain you during August, join Li for a brief history and guide to making a decorative shadow puppet menagerie. Wait for evening, grab a torch and try them out.

On Monday at 5 pm join Chris Collins from Garden Organic for an Urban Gardening workshop (register here).  Learn about growing both food and flowers in a small space. Chris will share the 10 Golden Rules for success with container gardening, talk about taking over an allotment area, how to get things in order and produce home grown food organically.

Chris Collins has spent 35 years in professional horticulture including Edinburgh and Kew Botanic Gardens and a decade as the Blue Peter gardener. He currently works as Head of Organic Horticulture for Garden Organic.

All Dragon Café Patrons are also warmly invited to be part of our collective blog Connect. Share your writings, art, music and ideas and see what others have been inspired by too. There is already a fantastic selection to explore there, so do take a look!

You can Register on the Connect site homepage to get involved.

Please note that we will be taking our annual break in August but return in September.

Take care everyone,
