Garden Weeks

A series of regular garden afternoons and garden weeks are proposed this year. We hope you can come and engage wholeheartedly, both physically and spiritually, experiencing and contemplating the soil we live on and live from.

We also invite you to take part in a new project taking place at Chisholme called 'Soil to Slice'. It is a pleasure to cooperate this year for the very first time with Scotland the Bread on this project. In the course of this growing season, we will be sowing wheat and rye on a plot in the walled garden with the intention to thresh it, mill it into flour and bake with it later this year. On April 15th, the day of sowing, there will be a small presentation about the project. If you would like to learn more about the 'Soil to Slice' project please follow this link.

The sowing date will be part of the first Garden Week of the year, which is taking place from April 11-18th. This will be in the spirit of planting and sowing seeds, but also exploring the garden as a place of ecological and spiritual education. We want to tend to the garden in the mornings, then break to have lunch together and then continue our work in the garden. After tea there will be the possibility to study on some days, practise meditative counter movements to the garden work, or rest.

We would kindly ask all participants to contribute to the costs of food and accommodation within the realms of their budget.

Our standard rates are:
£100 per person for one week (waged)
£65 per person for one week (unwaged, students, low income)
If this fee would be hindering your attendance, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

If you would like to take part in this gardening week, if you are interested in joining us on Friday April 15th or on any of the gardening afternoons please email
There will be garden weeks every month until September.
Please check our events calendar for future dates.
