Naomi introduces her patch...

My front lawn wasn't getting much use so I have decided it would be an ideal space to grow some veg.  My aim is to grow a variety of different things to eat whilst also having a beautiful garden to look at.  I've measured the space (and the width of my lawn-mower!), and planned out what I'd like to grow and where to plant things.  In February 2014 I made a start on digging it out and planted the first few crops.

We visited Naomi's garden last year - and now are excited to be invited back to see what progress she has made.

Free outdoor-only event.  Teas and coffees available.  No toilet available.

There is a fair amount parking in Brentfield Way.

The event will go ahead if it is raining - there is a small covered area available.
