After weeks of planning, we are delighted to let you know that SG SpringFest is now live, ready for you to sign up to one, some, or maybe even all of the events that we have on offer. We have tried very hard as a committee to provide something for everyone. On Zoom there are talks and demonstrations on all sorts of topics provided by local experts, from sushi to vegetable growing, bees to cocktails, together with flower arranging and a three course meal! We also have two fascinating talks from Timothy Walker, who used to run the Botanic Gardens in Oxford. We have live evening bird spotting walks, and two magical dawn chorus adventures. We have an experienced market gardener bringing young plants for summer colour for sale, and of course the Front Gardens Trail, at which we hope that you will enjoy walking round our wonderful village and chatting to your neighbours. And then you can finish the weekend off with a delicious afternoon tea.
And there's activities for the youngsters too - they might well be interested in many of the Zoom talks, and if they want to get outside we will be providing a treasure hunt, for which the prizes are seeds that they can use to develop their own love of gardening. And there are free plug plants for them to nurture too.
All the details and most of the events are now live to book on the website (www.seergreengardeners.org), and we have worked very hard to ensure that everything is free! Many thanks to Jordans Environment Trust for helping us reach this goal. I really hope that you enjoy the festival, please pass the details on to your friends!
