Be part of creating the Confucius Garden at Hulme Community Garden Centre!
The Confucius Institute has partnered up with Hulme Community Garden Centre to run a series of Chinese garden workshops. Come along to research the history, style and plants of a Chinese garden. During the series of workshops, the group will create plant ID sticks with common, Latin, and Chinese names which will form a guided walk through the gardens identifying plants that have originated from China. Ultimately, the Confucius Garden will be designed and built to form a peaceful place for people to sit and start enjoying the fruits of their labour, literally!
Our second workshop will begin with a classroom based discussion about ericaceous plants (Azaleas and Camellias to name a few that originate in China) and their different growing habitats.
Guided by Mark Frith, Activities Co-ordinator and Enterprise Manager you will have a walk around the garden centre and try to find Chinese plants like Loquat and Clivia and learn how to identify them. You will also learn how to test soil and sow seeds and exchange ideas for the new Confucius garden.
