Fork & Dig It come to Wellsbourne

Our community garden project has been given a huge boost this month. ‘Fork and Dig It’, the organic Community Food Growing Project based at Stanmer Park, is giving us fabulous free support, including expert advice, practical help and plants to grow. The support began in July and will continue for several months, ensuring our own volunteers have all the skills and knowledge to keep our garden growing free food for local people for years to come.

What’s more, we are about to embark on an amazing training programme with Jules and Andy from Fork and Dig It. There’s still a chance to join the programme if you are interested in learning more about community food growing. See below for details and contact us if you are interested in joining.
