I love bronze fennel, and the flowers are a much nicer shade of yellow than the ordinary green fennel, I think.

The running order at the gig has been slightly amended at Wizz Jones' request so that we end on a louder note with the No Frills Band smiling smiley so I've edited my post above accordingly.

Thanks Charlie, Fennel is a Phyto-oestrogen, and it can regulate the appetite. It was used in the roman times, for digestive and sexual health. winking smileyThe Physic garden will have a theme, we are looking at themes at the moment. Keep you updated

What about "Tranquility, relaxation and the slower pace'

We're all effected by the ever increasing pace of life, and the benefits of a quiet green space are limitless. Children (and adults too of course!) can gain the art of patience through gardening, you can't rush a plant!

Like the Slow Food Movement, started in Itlay, there are all sorts of interesting SLOW things happening in the UK and specifically in London

We could even make the garden a 'member' of the UK Slow Movement!

Lol Charlie, good idea, we need a form of slow movement at the moment, Life is getting a bit to fast for my liking. Edited to add, Do not forget we have the Goose is out fundraiser this Sunday at DHFC from 2pm onwards. All proceeds are donated to the garden fund. If you fancy a jig on a Sunday afternoon with your family, then get yourself along.
Great raffle prizes, good food, lots of lovely cakessmileys with beer and of course the wonderful musicians who have donated their time for the Community garden.

They have been moved to the "for sale" section confused icon

So just in case anybody should read this thread but not be looking to buy anything, here's what they said:

Raffle thread:

As part of the fundraising day this Sunday 22 January (see the links below if you don't know about it) there will be a fabulous raffle!

Tickets will be available at only a pound for a strip of five - and the tickets will be separated when the raffle is drawn, so for a pound you will have five chances to win these fantastic prizes kindly donated mainly by local businesses and residents.

Prizes include a 40 voucher to spend at The Actress, a box of goodies from SMBS and a voucher for any pair of men's, women's or children's shoes from any Central London branch of Camper Shoes.

For a full list of the prizes so far confirmed, please see the attached list!

The raffle will be drawn at 6.45pm before our headliner Wizz Jones plays.

Sealed Bids Auction Thread

To help raise money to fund the new Dulwich Community Garden, a Sealed Bids Auction will be held at the fundraising day on Sunday 22 January (see the link below).

There are two fabulous things being auctioned:

A year's family membership to Hamlets Health Club, WORTH 1000

and

A bespoke metalwork gate, mirror or sculpture WORTH UP TO 450 by Heather Burrell, the talented local resident who designed the beautiful metalwork gates in North Cross Road, including at the back of The Palmerston.


Click here to see more of Heather's work!

If you would like to bid for one of these items but you aren't able to attend the fundraiser (see the link below) please PM me with your bid and contact details, saying which item you are bidding for, and I will arrange for your bid to be entered into the auction.

Bids will be opened at 9pm on Sunday night, and the winners announced.

Click here for information about the fundraising day at which the bids will be opened

Edited to change the value of the health club prize, which I had understated, sorry!

And to add how grateful we are to both the very generous donors smiling smiley

Just to be clear, there is indeed a link from the Goose website to the ticket site, but if you want to click through to buy tickets directly, this is the link to use:

www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

To find out more about the musicians and the day, please click here:

www.thegooseisout.com/events.html#fund

Please note that the live music starts at 2pm and ends shortly before 9pm (when we will be announcing the results of the sealed bid auction plus the amount raised by the whole fundraising day), so whether you are a lark or an owl, have children or don't, we hope that you will be able to come and enjoy at least some if not all of it!

And don't forget, UNDER 12s ARE FREE!!!!

ETA: There will be an informal jam session after the "official" Goose/fundraiser part of the day finishes around 9pm, so if you are still raring to go at 9pm the night will still be young smiling smiley

Hi All
A massive thank you to all you lovely people who attended the Dulwich community garden Fundraiser, at the DHFC on Sunday. A fantastic time was had by all, and we have managed to raise over 1500.
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped on the door, made and sold the cakes, generally ran around and did all sorts.A big thank you to Dulwich Hamlet football club for letting us use your lovely space for free.
A heartwarming thank you to the musicians who donated their free time and talent to the event, and finally thank you Sue and Nyge for having the foresight of coming up with this amazing idea, and making it into a reality. The Dulwich community garden project, and I think I can say this on behalf of Heather, project manager and Vale resident's association chair, the Vale residents association, SNUB (me, Stewart although he's bikes pm, Hannah and Zoe,)and Robin Crookshankhilton, our lovely lib dem councillor, who is not on the garden project, however has been very helpful.
Thank you Goose is out, we love you guys.

Hi All
Just an update re the funding from Veolia, unfortunately we did not get it, too many applicants, way too many worthy projects. Just like ours.big grin So onwards and upwards. A delightful amount was raised at the Goose is out Fundraiser, plus we have received in kind support from Groundwork london, along with a cash fund. We have also received great donations from the community, and our amazing Sponsors Barry and his team at Mc Govern Carpentry are making and installing all the raised beds.
Plus we have the plant and top soil donations from Alek our generous gardener, so far, I think we have done remarkably well yay. smileys with beer.
So as always ED watch this space, for any updates, and we will keep you posted

Hi Forumites
Hope you are all well.
Thought I would to update this thread with answers to questions I have been asked re the project.
Thanks guys for the continuing interest, however I need to clarify this is not a SNUB project as highlighted in the Subject matter.
Heather Burrell who is chair of the Vale residents association, and the brains behind the community garden, was introduced to me by James Barber.
SNUB were looking for a community garden project. James bless him thought Heather's project, and SNUBs Success with the gardens for Schools project, would work well together. And we do so, a big thanks to James Barber.
SNUB approached Gardens for Schools Sponsor, Mc Govern Carpentry, who had built and installed the raised beds, at Goodrich, Summerhouse, and Goose green School, in 2009/2010, who were very happy to continue their support, and sponsorship for the Community garden project.
Along with funds from Groundwork london, cash and in kind support, and the Goose is out event, donations from the commumnity, and local Gardener Alek Nickolic ( did i get it wrong again big grin) we can now carry on with the garden.
SNUB have been successful, in East Dulwich, simply because we have a great community, who want to participate in community projects. SNUB ED's mission statement.
Thanks again ED, and yes Community action works, and oh yes it rocks
smileys with beer yay

Hey all, me again. Latest update on the Dulwich Community garden, is phase 1 of the raised beds built and installed by Barry and his team at Mc Govern carpentry and Design, is planned for the 4th March, weather permitting.big grin
We are also planning another plant donation day, however because the theme is Physic garden, we will be asking for specific plant donations. So if you have any spare Nasturtiums, Pulsatillas, Lemon balms, fennel or sweet thyme, and you would like to donate them, please hold on to them, for the next planned donation day.
As always guys, watch this space for updates.
Thanks as always smileys with beer

Any Nasturtiums anybody had will have been zapped by the cold by now, Monica smiling smiley

They are hardy annuals anyway, and do not normally last through the winter, though they carried on this year throughout the milder weather.

People may have nasturtium seeds, though I know that quite a few have already been donated. They're very easy to grow, just shove them in the ground where you want them smiling smiley

Thanks Sue, seeds are always very gratefully received, so they can be planted next year. To add on to my previous post, we will also ask for seeds in the next plant donation day

Hi All
Hope you are all keeping warm. I am on the beg again.the finger smiley If there are any lovely garden center managers or staff reading this post, then you are obviously interested in the progress of the Dulwich community garden. Alek our lovely landscape gardener has promised to donate some top soil, however we need more.
So please ( Im on on bended knees, not great with my dodgy back ) lovely garden center managers/staff could you please donate some top soil to our community garden. Funds are limited, and although I am currently looking at other funding streams, it may take a while.
Look forward to hearing from you, and as always watch this space.

Hi Charlie, Thank you for the link, very inspiring indeed. We do need to increase pollination, especially in built up areas. Although we have the parks, Peckham Rye and Dulwich, a meadow of beautiful wild flowers, which will encourage more bees to pollinate, in the community, is a project SNUB would like to get involved with.

Further update on the garden, we now have 9 raised beds on site. Thanks to Barry, Peter, Jake and Mickey at Mc Govern carpentry and design, for committing your valuable time, labour and materials to the garden. The beds look amazing, when I visited the site, early Sunday morning, I had to fight back the tears. Our community garden is now taking shape, and I can see it is going to be a beautiful physic garden.
We shall be having a project day next Sunday 4th March. Anyone can drop by between 11 am and 3 pm - it would be great to have as many people as possible to line and fill the beds.
We don't have many garden tools at present so if you could bring your own shovel or rake for the day - that would be very helpful.
