Showing visitors around the garden
This is the last of the OpenFoodGardens open visits of this summer. You are invited to come and see how some-one else manages all their garden fruit and vegetable challenges!
With the opportunity to talk to the gardener in a relaxed environment these visits offer a unique perspective to see close-up how a fellow gardener encourages the green beans, crops the courgettes, manages the mulching and rotates the compost! Whether you are new to gardening, or an experienced green hand, these open garden visits offer something for everyone to see.

Six homes are taking part in this year’s St Albans Energy Saving Homes Weekend. The home are located across the city and you are invited to visit and get some ideas and see how different households are trying to make their homes more energy efficient.
More details can be found on the Energy Saving Homes Website http://www.stalbansenergysavinghomes.co.uk or see the houses you can visit by clicking on the links below.
St Albans Energy Saving Homes is organised by Transition St Albans. It was created for people to visit homes that are striving to be more sustainable and enable them to talk to the owners, benefit from their experience, avoid expensive mistakes and start developing energy saving ideas in their homes.
The homes taking part have reduced their energy bills, made their homes more comfortable to live in and in some cases benefitted from renewable and low carbon energy, in the form of solar PV, solar thermal and wood fuel.
Come and visit Transition St Albans OpenFoodGarden at
21 Sherwood Avenue, AL4 9QJ
Visitors to these gardens can see for themselves the variety of vegetables you can grow in a relatively small space and get tips on composting and water conservation.
The social aspect of visiting other people’s gardens is as important this year as ever before as gardeners share their experience of growing in a variety of conditions.
Suggested donation of £2. No dogs except for guide dogs. We are sorry but wheelchair access is restricted.
