Edible Gardens open day will be from 1-4pm, with the judging of our Big Sunflower Competition from 3pm. There will be apple pressing with a range of heritage varieties from the orchard, and we will be firing up the clay oven for bread baking…or we may try “empanadas” this year! Visitors will be able to pick their own produce, forage for soft fruits and herbs, as well as having the opportunity to buy some of our much sought-after honey – hayfever sufferers welcome! (Did you know honey from your local bees can help banish seasonal sneezes?) We hope growers will bring in their biggest blooms for consideration in our Big Sunflower Competition. Please note all entries or pictures of entries MUST be submitted by 3pm that day.
The celebration will continue into the evening, with a Harvest Supper and Gardeners’ Question Time quiz held at the CRESS pavilion at 5pm (this will be garden themed, so don’t worry if you don’t know a lot about gardening!). Please book a table for your team (minimum four people per team) on 01473 345350 and get your thinking caps on … Tickets: £5 each or £3 for regular volunteers of ActivGardens.
