Library Community Garden and Bungay Gardens Art Trail – Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th July, 12 noon – 4pm

5124818We’re on the Trail! This weekend the Library Community Garden is taking part in the Black Dog Arts Garden Art Trail. We’ll be here to guide you round the permaculture garden Sustainable Bungay created in 2009, where we keep a showcase bed and run a progamme of events around different themes, from bee-friendly flowers to medicine plants.

This year we have focused on dye plants and Mary Sprake from Black Dog Arts – who gave a great talk here on woad in April – will be displaying some of her true blue fabrics in this very green courtyard.

Each year Black Dog Arts organises a Garden Art Trail around some of the hidden gardens of Bungay. Here is their invitation: “You can stroll round the town and discover great garden gems and the garden art and craftworks inspired by them.

There are approximately 9 gardens open this year mostly within the town centre but a few will be on the outskirts making this more of a diverse tour. The gardens are picked because they are all well hidden and have their own interesting features.

There will be art in all the gardens consisting of sculpture, ceramics and paintings/drawings and textile work. Also included is our Allotment Society.

BCLG 13.7.2014Refreshments will be provided at one of the gardens.

Proceeds to Black Dog arts to fund workshops in much of the art media.

Cost:
£2.00 for entry to all gardens (though entrance to the library is free)

How to get event passports:
Leaflet maps available from Bungay library in Wharton Street or shops, businesses and community buildings throughout the town.
