Grow your own, Allotments

To capitalis on the interest in growing veggies there is  a new event, The Grow Your Own Show which takes place on 1st/2nd May in Guildford.

“The Grow Your Own Show is totally, passionately and exclusively focused on cultivating, cooking and eating homegrown, local and organic produce,” says Event Director Diane Clifford.

“Our tag line of “Grow It. Cook It. Eat It” sums up our proposition completely. This show is focused on growing your own fruit and vegetables and then on enjoying them – it is absolutely not a general gardening show, nor a flower show, nor a country fair,” she adds. “We believe growing your own is a fun activity for the whole family and that our visitors will have a thoroughly enjoyable day out”.

The event is supported by The National Trust which has backed a number of campaigns in support of home grown and locally sourced produce. Richard Saville, Chairman of The National Trust South East Food Group said: “ We are delighted to support this exciting new show. The Grow Your Own Show comes at an ideal time where more and more people want to grow, harvest and eat their own local and seasonal food.”

The event is also supported by the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners, will are working closely with the Soil Association and who are also affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
