Seasonal Quiet Garden Day at the Bield
July 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£48.00
The Bield has been a member of the Quiet Garden Movement for 20 years, one of more than 200 Quiet Gardens across the world . We nurture access to outdoor spaces for prayer, reflection and creativity. We are blessed to have a wide variety of such spaces at the Bield. This year we will highlight the Quiet Garden Movement with seasonal programme days and will donate part ofthe income to the Quiet Garden Movement. Each Quiet day will begin with hot drinks and a tour round our delightful walled garden. Our garden team, Pamela Grossi and Jillian Gibson will help you discover the gifts and surprises of the season. They will also be available later to answer any questions you may have about gardening. There will be a time of guided meditation and reflection to consider how the Season speaks to our spirits . For those who wish this will be followed by a period of silence before lunch, time to further explore the garden and its impact on you. Lunch consists of an attractive variety of salads and potatoes or soup with as much Blackruthven produce as possible.
In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to work creatively with what the season offers : such as making a Spring Garden, and summer, a flower arrangement, in Autumn a wreath or garland and in Winter a Christmas decoration. Alternatively, you can spend this time exploring the riches of the art space or enjoy discovering more of the Bield gardens. We will finish the day with a time of prayer in the Chapel and a hot drink with home-baking
