It’s a new year and time to announce our ‘Meet the Gardener’ sessions as part of the Edible Gardening project. Did you know that we run weekly Meet the Gardener session in the Demonstration Garden outside the Botanic Cottage? Want to see the produce we grow, get inspired and have the opportunity to ask questions about how to grow your own healthy and tasty fruit and veg? Then drop by our Meet the Gardener sessions and meet our amazing team of volunteers!
