We were really thrilled recently to be approached by the RHS Malvern edible team and asked to plant up 2 small raised bed gardens at the RHS Malvern Spring Show, which runs from 11th to 14th May. You can find more information about the show here.
The gardens will really talk of what we do, with one focussing on our food growing and speaking of our ethos and methodology, and one focussing on edible flowers, whilst speaking of the importance of supporting local growers and producers. They will be both beautiful and productive, show the importance of good horticultural knowledge and understanding when working in the public realm and show what that space could look like if good horticulture was embedded in policy in towns and cities across the UK.
Our founder, Sara Venn, will also be talking at the show and taking part in a couple of conversations about food and growing. We will release the timetable of talks once it has been verified and officially announced.
Our wonderful pals at Almondsbury Garden Centre have already helped us with the plants that we need and we have had a beautiful centre piece created by KWMC-The Factory, so plans are well underway. The gardens will be manned, as it were, by members of our team and by our Incredible Community Gardeners, without whom we would achieve nothing, so if you are at the show please do pop along and have a chat with us and find out how you can get involved with us if you are in Bristol, or how you can get involved with the wider Incredible edible Movement if you live farther afield!!
