Last Friday was a BIG day at the SAGE Garden. It was concreting day for the SAGE Old Duffers and - boy! - did they ever put in a morning's work!

As part of the suite of site improvement projects that we're working on, we've now constructed a level floor under the roof, improving safety and accessibility thanks to a grant from the Building Better Regions Fund. There was even enough leftover concrete to fill in most of the path in the front garden.

These works will help us better deliver our main objectives of increasing local food production  through education and fun.

Hats off to the Old Duffers who kept up a frantic pace laying several truck loads of concrete over a few hours. They earned those beers! Many thanks to you all.

There's more work to be done to finish and tidy the area, but we're well on the way to providing a better functioning facility, including an outdoor kitchen, for our members and visitors.

Keep watching this space for more updates!

This week I taught 142 children to grow their own food, to connect with nature and to engage in meaningful conversations about bees and worms. The children embrace these moments and it gives me much hope for the future. 🐝🌻💛

A beautiful spring afternoon spent exploring the seasons through music and movement, with a lovely and very fun group of pre-schoolers this afternoon. 🎶🐞🌱🌧☀️ #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #musicincursion #teachingchildrentogrow #musicandnature

These kinder children were so proud of the musical instruments they had made between my visits, using found and recycled objects, and loose parts from inside and outside. 🎶🎶 #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #learningthroughplay #homemademusic #musicincursions #holisticeducation #sustainablelearning

Using nature treasures and handmade props, the children help to set the scene for exploring how our environment changes through the year in our 'Seasons' music incursion.

Bells and shakers in last week's incursions🎶🎶 #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #musicincursions

🎶Roll that little ball to a friend, roll that little ball round...🎶 Ball songs support children to work in pairs and small groups, and pairing music with a physical or tactile prop can provide vital information to the body's proprioceptive and vestibular systems. #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #musicincursions #thewholechild #sensoryplay #holisticeducation

🎶Ladybird you're very neat, from tiny head to little feet. I like your coat of red and black, I like your clean and shining back...beneath your shiny back there lie, the gauzy wings with which you fly. You're spreading them - oh please don't go, there's such a lot I want to know!🎶 #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #musicincursions #musicandnature #almostspring #enidblyton
