Broadbeans in feb 2016Gardeners and would-be gardeners are being invited to kick-start their gardening year with fun green-fingered gardening activities at the Big Dig Food Growing Event (on national Big Dig Day), at Martineau Gardens on Saturday 22 April, 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 to inspire even the most reluctant gardeners to don their gardening gloves. Activities include hands-on vegetable growing techniques and seed bombing. There will be plant and compost sales plus tea and homemade cake will be on offer.
