GIYO Event

‘Hedgy’ took centre stage of our ‘wildlife in the garden’ display at the Grow it Yourself: Organic event in Letchworth. We also sold plants and items from the Trading Store on our stall. During the afternoon there was an interesting talk by Karen Kenny about companion planting.
Thanks to everyone who helped out.
