These events are friendly, fun and informal. You are invited to come along, have a look round, even get a cup of tea and cake if you are lucky! You are welcome to talk to the plants, chat to the gardener or other visitors. Come on your own or bring a neighbour! See what fruit and vegetables can be grown at home! Get tips and advice on designing your vegetable plot and how to deal with critters! We welcome suggested £2 donation to help us cover our costs. Any profit goes to Sustainable St Albans charity.
