Come and see our displays of flowers, fruit, veg and handicrafts– better still why not put in an exhibit or two yourselves; you don’t have to be an expert to join in. Both members and non-members are welcome to enter and there is a trophy for best newcomer.
There will again be demonstrations and a plant/produce sale including cakes, jams & chutneys as well as home-grown produce. All this plus refreshments with home-made cakes and free entry makes it a great afternoon out for everyone.

Seedlings Autumn Workshop
Activities include: Harvesting pumpkins, sowing autumn sown veg such as board beans, onions and peas, tidying the plot for winter.
Seedlings Autumn Summer Workshop
Sunday 13th October 10:30am to 12:00noon
This is our fifth 'Seedlings' workshop of the year for young gardeners aged 4 to 14 years old. During the workshop, children will:
• Harvest pumpkins and see how much they weigh
• Sow more bulbs, board beans, onions and peas
• Tidy the plot for winter
• More ideas still being worked on
• Listen to gardening stories
This will be done under parental supervision on the 'Seedlings' allotment in Letchworth. Each child will receive a certificate and will get to take home what they have done. The cost is £3/child.
Email Kay Walker on firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place, first come first served.
Children love getting their hands mucky, so gardening can be the perfect activity to do together that will help them learn more about nature whilst having fun.
