THE CRESS PAVILION CURRENTLY ISN’T AVAILABLE FOR HIRE due to covid-19 restrictions
WHAT IS THE CRESS MARKET?
CRESS Community Market and Café offers freshly picked produce and a wide variety of plants, all grown at ActivGardens, as well as seasonal jams, chutneys and honey from our bees, when available. Other community partners and local groups join in with range of stalls. The café is hosted by our volunteers and serves up allotment soup, delicious homemade cakes and other goodies. It’s a chance for local people to get together for a cuppa and a chat, to join in with what we do, and enjoy what we grow.
WANT TO HOLD A STAND?
We welcome new ideas, and you can hold a stand for just £5 or 10% of takings (whichever is greater). Just get in touch with Susannah Robirosa on 07530 407302 or email email@example.com
ACTIVITIES FOR SCHOOLS & COLLEGES
CRESS serves as a “field classroom” for schools and colleges. A day can combine hands-on gardening with creative/ arts/ environmental education/ science activities in the CRESS Pavilion.
FIELD TO FORK
Growing, cooking and healthy eating – we run day and half-day events for schools and colleges, community and other groups, by arrangement. A typical programme would involve garden activities alongside learning how to cook with fresh vegetables and fruit.
HOLIDAY DAY CAMPS
We can design a day for your group. For example – greenfingers activity day for young families, team-building day for young people, beekeeping safari.
COURSES, TRAINING & WORKSHOPS
We run a wide variety of activities at the CRESS Pavilion, for example, cooking, honey-harvesting, pickling and jam-making; clubs and crafts. It is also a venue for staff and volunteer training. CRESS has hosted print workshops by a local artist, a community recycling course and Eden Project Big Lunch Extras event. Get in touch if you’d like to hold an activity or run a course at CRESS.
