Growing Newsome at Stirley Farm – May to July 2012

Gardeners at the Stirley veg beds, squeezing leek stemsWith the growing season in full swing, we’re continuing our food growing get-togethers at  Stirley Farm, especially for residents of the Newsome Ward. These are informal practical sessions where local people can meet each other and learn something new at the same time.

Please come along to join other local food growers who are learning how to grow together. You can join in at any time. Just meet us in the farmyard at Stirley (off Ashes Lane) on the day.
