Northfield Ecocentre will be holding an open day at Masefield Community Garden and Allotments on Saturday 16th March, 12noon to 4pm. This is part of The Big Dig, a nationwide project encouraging people to get involved with community food growing, including many others in Birmingham.
Jackie Green, Project Coordinator explained; “This is an opportunity for anyone to come and see the site, meet us and find out more about the project. We have lots of big plans including allotment plots, a wildlife area, an outdoor classroom, and earth oven. We will be running workshops covering the basics of food growing, forest gardening, composting and loads more. We’ll have events throughout the year. We’re already planning a summer picnic!”
“If you are interested in food growing or just want to see the site, come along on Saturday. We’re a friendly bunch and you don’t have to lift a spade if you don’t want to. There are loads of ways to get involved.
