We made another visit to the Castlemilk Carpenters’ Workshop as trainees from the Help Yourself Grow gardening scheme visited in January and February. The trainees were making planters in the workshop. They had a great time and learned new carpenting skills as well as the lovely new planters for the Help Yourself Grow training garden that were made.
The Help Yourself Grow cookery trainees had another visit to Windmills Cafe in Motherwell, the cafe with a conscience. We promised another visit and we duly delivered! The Wednesday and Thursday cookery groups went there on the 30th and 31st of January. The visit was a great opportunity to sample the delicious food and drink available at the Windmills Cafe
Help Yourself Grow took 3 stalls at this year’s Castlemilk Christmas Event. Our cookery and gardening groups worked really hard to create some fabulous items to sell at the event. Unfortunately the weather was awful which kept some people away, but the event was still well attended. We managed to sell many of our items including Christmas wreaths, willow lanterns,
