Writing in the Garden

with Woodlands Community Garden

Free Writing the Garden sessions

starting Tuesday 8 January – 12 February 2019 2-4pm

There’s a lot in common between writing and gardening. Both start small – seeds & words – and grow from there. The stories of growing can make up a story or a poem or a great diary entry or memory or even personal writing which is only meant for the writer to see. In writing, we can explore recipes, paradises, imaginary gardens, seasons, garden work, wild gardens, city gardens and public gardens. Gardeners have so many stories to tell – and to write!

The world is our garden as well as our oyster.

Have you ever told a friend about what you do in the garden? Maybe written a wee text to say the potatoes are flowering? Then you’re well on the way to writing your way through the garden. If you can say it or make a text, you can write it.

Why write it? because it’s as good as growing some plants – it’s something you can share with other folk or maybe just keep to yourself. There are no crooked words – no wrong words. In our sessions, we’ll try all sorts of writing – no experience is necessary – to have fun and maybe to get us all sharing the joys of words and er, well, carrots
