Mike, Frank and Dave were down at the Harbour Ward Community Garden recently. One wonderful sunny morning we improved the water collection on the slope above. This year there will hopefully be lots of beds with happy healthy plants in them
We added some corrugated sheets of plastic, which should deed into the guttering and waterbutt nicely. Powered by Rooibus tea and cheese biscuits it was lovely, what a few! Mike also installed a bench to make enjoying it even nicer.
We hope you’re feeling thirsty!
See you later for the tea tasting and talk!
Lynda Jones : Hello there, I’ve decided to do a “question and answer” session about my work. I felt that would b more helpful than choosing one subject that might not suit all. Please note though, I can’t be specific about your own personal health issues outside the consultation setting. I look forward to meeting you 😃 xxx
Event details are here.
Not long until the tea tasting and talk! What blends are your favourite?

Here’s a poem about tea from our columnist Dave Horn:
The kettle boils
Signalling the end
Of recent toils
Time for tea!
A dear one calls
And from all around they descend
Just one cup of tea
Is the source of such glee!
A time to rest and share
Make it herbal
And it’s even healthy
Hearts, minds and bodies on the mend
That is the beauty of tea
Rooted in simplicity
It has such capacity
To bring happiness and laughter
A good old catch-up
Or debrief post disaster
Seemingly infinite in it’s forms
A good tea pot
Every house should adorn
Bring out an infuser
And you’re stepping
Into tea porn
Just hot water
But add sugar
Of a bad ilk
But that is tea’s beauty
Who am I to prescribe or judge
And infinite variations
We all have our particular
Tea related fixations
A shared experience
Your unique expression
For times good
For times bad
Tea is a gift and tool
Bring life whatever it would

See you in a week!
We are very excited to announce we will be hosting another tea tasting! We really enjoyed the last one, and love tea perhaps a little too much, so thought we’d do it again!
We’ll have a range of teas, some we’ve bought and some that have been blended by Cantiaci members in-house at Kipps’ Alehouse, Folkestone. Expect delicious teas and leave your tasting notes!
This time we have invited a guest speaker, local herbalist Lynda Jones! Lynda will be speaking about healthy living through herbalism and the power of herbs!
Join us at Kipps’ Alehouse, Folkestone on Thursday 9th February at 7pm for some amazing tea inspired times! Below is our poster as well as some photos from last year!
