Where have all the pumpkins gone?!  

Autumn Equinox is a good time to harvest and we were concerned all our recent wet weather would turn them to Pumpkin Mash so this week our Little Sprouts and young Artists and Scientists have been busy harvesting and next week is our time to share!  Tuesday 26th September Little Sprouts delivers produce to the Community Cafe at Castelnau Community Centre.  Wednesday 27th Art & Science after-school club delivers to the OSO cafe.  This is also a great chance for us to have a look at what is happening around the Pond and how many birds we can identify.  Thursday 28th students from Paddock School, who are using the Common and Vine Road to find out more about Seasons and Weather in their local community through a series of sensory and collecting walks, will been taking a pumpkin up to their superb Paddock School Cafe run by the post-16 students at the school. 

We have kept one big pumpkin here to be shared by individuals who have sent in recipes.  We will be doing this in half term on Tuesday 24th October at 11.30.  We are so excited to think about how many friends and family groups will share our pumpkin, and we can't wait to see the photos!

We want our pumpkins to be enjoyed by as many as possible!

This year, our pumpkins have been a huge success and we love that so many people of all ages are stopping by regularly to chat and to see how big they are getting.  We wanted to find a way to share our harvest with as many of you as possible so here it is.... just follow the easy-peasy steps and let's see how many people we can get to enjoy sharing, cooking, eating and taking part in the first ever .....
