Year of Home
29th April 23, 2-5pm
Free Community Event!
Citrus is looking forward to welcoming you to our ‘Year of Home’ Open Doors day on Saturday April 29th at Hopkinstown Hall from 2-5pm. This FREE community event is part of our ongoing ‘Year of Home’ project.
We’ll be cooking up some foraged delights to share at the close of the day (nettle soup), experimenting with the ‘German Wheel’ and doing some family crafts with a theme of ‘Home.’ Free refreshments and other creative activities to enjoy throughout the afternoon for everyone. Just turn up!
Before the Hall events, we will be going for a nettle foraging walk at 1pm you are also welcome to attend.
‘Year of Home’ ahead of us. A year-long programme of community events, classes, workshops and performances all on our theme of HOME.
Later in the year we will be building a Ty Unnos (House in one night) on Pontypridd Common - legend has it that if one could build a house over a single night and have fire burning in the hearth by dawn, you could make your home there. You could farm the land as far as you could throw an axe from your front door.
