In celebration of Earth Day 2022 🌎 we’re teaming up with Oxford Brookes University to run a live Q&A session on how to grow your own food!

We’ll answer your questions in the chat & talk about how to start growing in a garden, on a patio or on a windowsill!

Home composting workshops (in person)

We are running two in-person workshops on home composting in Banbury and Didcot, Oxfordshire.

Composting is an easy and eco-friendly way to deal with kitchen and garden waste. Known as black gold by gardeners, homemade compost is full of life and nutrients that will feed your soil and your plants.

In these sessions we will look at:

  • How homemade compost supports soil and plant health
  • How composting works and popular methods
  • How to set up and maintain your composting system

BANBURY: Saturday 23rd April 11-12:30PM. More info here. Email banburycag@gmail.com to book your free place.

DIDCOT: Wednesday 11th May 6-7:30pm. More info and booking here.

These sessions are free to attend and are being organised in collaboration with the wonderful community groups Banbury Community Action Group and Sustainable Didcot! Voluntary donations for the community groups are appreciated.
