Colden Common Greening Campaign launch ‘Love Your Own Food’, a free springtime event to encourage local people to grow their own food.  boxofapplesHome-grown produce is greener by far, can be sociable, healthy and fun.  To launch their campaign, the Greening Campaign has got together with local gardening experts & businesses to offer help and advice on everything from compost to carrot fly, plus advice on energy savings to help reduce your carbon footprint.

There will be plenty to entertain the kids, with a pet farm on site, displaying live llamas, goats, sheep, ducks and more!  Food-tasting, seed-planting and face-painting activities should give children a taste for healthy food and the ‘good life’!  

With plenty of freebies, plant swops, stalls offering locally made food, and refreshments, why not cheer up February by coming along to this free and fun event!
