Open Food Garden Sun 8th July 3-5pm

What do you do at a weekend in a heat-wave when there’s no Wimbledon and no footie?

Come and be inspired at our free Open Food Garden event – anytime between 3-5pm.

These events are friendly, fun and informal. You are invited to come and have a look round, even get a cup of tea and cake if you are lucky! Talk to the plants, chat to the gardener or other visitors!  Come on your own or bring a neighbour! See what fruit and vegetables can be grown at home! Get tips and advice on designing your vegetable plot and how to deal with critters! The events are free – we welcome suggested £2 donation to help us cover our costs.
