This Festival is about discovering all that you can do with gardening and attending to the earth and environment. We believe that you can create and grow, wherever you live, whether you have a windowsill or a field. That working with Nature, we can enhance biodiversity, learn valuable lessons and that being outdoors can improve our well being.
