Come to our “Get Growing!” Autumn Open Day on November 9th. The first in a series of special hands-on open days we will run throughout the year.
After working up an appetite in the morning sowing broad beans and planting garlic cloves, we will enjoy a home-cooked three course lunch prepared from home-grown ingredients.
Then back to the vegetable garden for a guided tour, where you will also meet our ducklings (next year’s slug control in training!) and learn how to make your own quality compost,  followed by free time to explore the rest of the farm at your own pace and finally an informal Q&A with tea and cake. We will then send you off with either a packet of our own saved vegetable seeds or a winter squash.
You will leave having gained some practical experience and hopefully be motivated to continue growing on your own garden/allotment/windowsill, and we will hope to see you back at the next open garden day in the spring!
