Open Food Garden – come on in! Sat 4 June

Wish you could grow more fruit and veg at home? Stroll along to 13 Abbey View Road, St Albans, AL3 4QL this Saturday 4th June – drop-in anytime between 3-5pm.

It’s free! It will inspire you! It will be a great afternoon out…

Come along on your own, or bring a friend – have a look around the garden, talk to the gardener if you want to find out more. Get some tips and advice on how to grow various vegetables and fruit – and come away with some new ideas on how to design your own fruit and veg patch at home!

St Albans unique Open Food Gardens are ideal for beginners and more experienced gardeners alike! This very popular summer programme has food gardens big and small, across the district from Harpenden to Wheathampstead and in-between!

It kicks off this Saturday with a mature garden with a great view of the Abbey.

The top part of the rear garden is mainly given over to flowers, lawn and a seating area, plus rhubarb, herbs and two plum trees. At the far end the owners grow a wide variety of fruit (mainly soft fruits, plus a vine) and vegetables (including potatoes, broad beans, spinach, carrots, leeks, parsnips and onions).

The garden features use of various reclaimed materials, a tumbler composter and several water tanks and butts.

    Do you have other Open Food Garden events after June 4th. Specially interested in making best use of a smaller garden space and growing veg in containers.

    Also will spare plants be on sale on the 4th?

  2. Annie – we have 7 gardens opening over June, July, August and September! Have a look at the Open Food Garden web page for the full programme

  3. Some gardeners have a few plants for visitors to take for a donation, but this is not an integral part of the events.

    I am trying to unsubscribe from TSA emails because I am just suffering overload at the moment. However, when I click unsubscribe I get sent to a wordpress site and it is really confusing. I can’t see how to unsubscribe. Could you please take me off your list? Thank-you.Katie Barron
