The Green Scene (2015)
2016 no Festival in 2016
The Green Scene, now in its third year, continues to develop along the lines of fun, educational events for young and old alike, often adding glimpses from a more personal perspective.
We are very pleased to welcome back conservation groups. The Barn Owl Trust (www.barnowltrust.org.uk), British Divers Marine Life Rescue (www.bdmir.org.uk), Cornwall Seal Group (www.cornwallsealgroup.co.uk), SINNG – Student Invasive Non-Native Group (www.sinng.org.uk), Devon and Cornwall Bat Groups (www.devonbatgroup.org & www.cornwall-batfroup.co.uk The Bumblebee Conservation Trust (www.bumblebeeconservation.org) with help from various sources; the bumblebee reappears on other stands as its survival becomes more precarious.
We welcome for the first time SITA( www.sita.co.uk) who plan to do a ‘make and do’ activity for children – making creatures out of rubbish.
The local magazine, Resurgence and Ecologist brings together inspirational words of wisdom from all over the planet.
The Trussell Trust – Food Bank at Wadebridge, joining us for the first time would, I am sure, be grateful for any tinned food donation to help those who from time to time could use a helping hand.
Friends of the Earth (www.foe.co.uk) are here again with a plant stall (donations welcomed), herbs and herbal remedies, seed swap and seed saving, companion planting and other stimulating topics.
Gardening is probably the most basic of green activities. There are a number of local gardening clubs, each one different and in their own way special. This year the newly formed St Gennys Gardening Club joins us under the banner ‘The birth of a Gardening Club’. In addition they hope to offer insights into container growing, the metre square garden, wildlife gardening, grow your own forest in a jam jar, apple pressing (please bring your own apples to press), making newspaper fire logs, baking cakes with vegetables, a Green Magazine and book reading area and others. Have you any green reading to share or pass on?
Again we welcome back the highly successful Boscastle and Crackington Haven Gig Club (www.boscastlegigclub.org.uk)
Situated on the riverbank to run their walks/cookery sessions.
Booking is advisable as these walks are popular wherever they appear and can be over subscribed . Costs are £20 per adult and £5 per child.
Dedicated to the conservation of barn owls.
