    Wells Goes Green presents: Let's Get Growing!

    Wells Goes Green presents: Lets Get Growing!

    The next Wells Goes Green workshop, Let’s Get Growing! will be all about growing food at home! This workshop will be full of tips and advice on growing fruit and veg from your home, and how to turn your food waste into compost! Whether you have a large garden or a windowsill, you can still get growing at home! 

    Let's Get Growing! will be hosted by The Bishop’s Palace in the Community Garden. There will be a potting activity run by the Community Gardener, a talk by the Compost Champions from The Somerset Waste Partnership and a tour of the Allotments! There will also be plenty of opportunities for conversation about growing with knowledgeable and experienced gardeners. 

    Growing at home has many benefits for your health, both mental and physical, and benefits the planet! Growing at home reduces the amount of food that needs to be transported (both nationally and internationally) to fill the demand. Similarly, eating seasonally with the food grown in your garden reduced our dependency on imported food and lowers your personal carbon footprint!  

    There will be two sessions, a morning session and an afternoon session. The sessions will be the same, so you only need to book one. In each session, three groups will be formed to participate in and rotate through each activity (each activity will last 30 minutes). Tickets are free, but spaces are limited so be sure to book early to secure a space. Please arrive at the gates of The Bishop’s Palace 15 minutes prior to the start time specified on your ticket to allow you to get to the Community Garden for a prompt start. 

    To book tickets, please follow the link to The Bishop’s Palace booking page: https://shop.myonlinebooking.co.uk/BishopsPalace/sessions.aspx?tid=127

    Please be aware, that photographs will be taken throughout the event for use on our website and social media.
