Advance notice …

Our annual Open Day will take place on Saturday September 29th from 12pm. As usual we’re holding it on Michaelmas Day, associated traditionally with the end of harvest and the beginning of autumn when rents are due, land is exchanged and hiring takes place. Add to that mix a celebration of the past year and all, with a little imagination, can apply to GO2’s event.

The advance warning is for you to put the date in your diary.


The day is for everyone; growers, their families and friends of Grow-Or-Own and Growing at Home. We need volunteers to help on the day, in setting up, running a stall and clearing up. Jane G would welcome donations for the tombola and asks that any donation be put in the box (marked ‘Tombola’!) in the big shed.

If you have an idea for a stall or activity that would add to the celebration and also might raise a few pennies for the project, we’d love to hear. So, if you’d like to be involved, either email us at bluebell@ grow-own-own.co.uk or speak to whoever is on duty when you visit on a Wednesday or Sunday morning.




Just a few remaining….

We’re coming to the end of the growing season but there are still plants to go in.

There will be spring cabbage and a few salad plants available outside the polytunnel on Sunday.
