• Compost and Veg Event at Martineau Gardens Saturday 21st March

    Ready, steady …grow! Gardeners and would-be gardeners are being invited to kick-start their gardening year with fun green-fingered gardening activities at the Compost and Veg event (on national Big Dig Day), at Martineau Gardens on Saturday 21 March, from 2pm – 4pm. The Community Garden in Edgbaston, Birmingham  is hosting the free event to encourage people to grow their own food, no matter how big or small their grow space is or how much or how little experience they have.
    The event will include drop-in food growing workshops and family-friendly activities to inspire even the most reluctant gardeners to don their gardening gloves. Activities include hands-on vegetable growing techniques, potato planting plus making a   compost heap from scratch. There will be garden-themed art and craft activities for children with Crafty Kids with Kika, plus tea and cake on offer from the Pavilion.
    Free entry at Martineau Gardens, 27 Priory Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham B5 7UG. Click here for more information.
