National Gardens Scheme Open Day Sunday 31st May 11am -4pm

This will be the third year that we’ve opened our coastal garden for the NGS. We love welcoming visitors to the garden and raising money for NGS charities. Every year we try out different plants and add new features to the garden. So, if you’ve visited before why not come again? We open in partnership with Nicholas Pierce at 1 White Cottages, 109 High Street, Bembridge, (which is less than a mile away). The admission charge of £3.00 allows you to visit both gardens and is donated to NGS charities. With homemade tea and cakes as well as plants for sale it should be a great day.

Did you know that the National Gardens Scheme (www.ngs.org.uk) gives away more than £2.5 million each year to nursing, caring and gardening charities. In the last 15 years the NGS has raised more than £25 million.
This event is at Blue Haze, 24 Beachfield Rd, Bembridge, PO35 5TN. Please park, if possible, in one of the lay-by areas on the tarmacked part of the road. Blue Haze (number 24) is on the right, on the unmade part of Beachfield Rd.

Beach School for Adults Saturday 11th July 10.00 - 15.00

This day could be run on Friday 10th July if a school day is more convenient!

Several years ago I trained as a Beach Schools Practitioner. Since then I’ve facilitated dozens of days on the beach for families and children. We’ve made artworks and built boats, lit fires and cooked marshmallows. As the plant nursery has expanded and I design more gardens I have less time to run Beach Schools. However, I’m keen to pass on ideas and techniques for exploring our coastal environment and hope that this day for adults will inspire you to create and build on the beach with your own children. They’ll be lots of hand-on activities as well as advice and information on staying safe and how to keep everyone engaged. Plus, a chance to light a fire and toast a marshmallow or two, the Beach School way!

£30.00 BOOKING ESSESNTIAL tel/text 07977 550050 or email thecoastalgardener@icloud.com

This session will take place on Forelands Beach, Bembridge. We’ll meet at Blue Haze, 24 Beachfield Rd, Bembridge, Isle of Wight, PO35 5TN

Please bring a light lunch and a drink.

Open Studios Friday 24th July - Monday 27th July 10.00 am - 5.00 pm

The Art of the Garden!

Gerry Price, The Coastal Gardener, trained as a sculptor and sees the garden as a living installation; a sculpture that grows. Within the garden are 2 and 3 dimensional art works, many of which have been made from objects washed ashore. During open studios they’ll be new artworks in the garden and conservatory as well as participatory activities for children and the young at heart!
Art works and plants for sale.

Open Studios (www.isleofwightarts.com). is an annual event which takes place over two weekends in July. More than 150 artists from across the island open their homes and studios to show their work and demonstrate the processes they use.

Make it Christmas Saturday 21st November 10.00am - 4.00pm

For the last couple of years we've hosted Christmas with the Coastal Gardener & Friends, a Christmas Fair with a difference. It's been very successful but we decided that it was time for a change so, instead of inviting you to come and buy Christmas gifts, we're inviting you to come and make them yourself! You'll have the chance to make various types of wreaths, gifts made from sailing charts, drift wood Christmas trees and, as they say, much, much more! If you’d like to take a stance against the commercialism of Christmas or just want a day to explore your creativity then call/text/email and I’ll book a place for you.

This course will be run in the Coastal Gardener’s home at Blue Haze, 24 Beachfield Rd, Bembridge, Isle of Wight, PO35 5TN

Please bring a light lunch. Complimentary drinks and homemade cakes provided

£45.00 (includes all materials and tuition)
