The Plot: growing organic veg – Lancaster Heath Festival
Come and join us for a tour of the Plot and a chance to taste the seasonal vegetables we are growing!
The tour will take place at our one-acre growing site at Old Holly Farm, PR3 1AA.
We would love to share our story and learning with you – you will have a chance to see and understand how we have transformed two paddocks into a productive growing site in 5 months.
Our tours will be led by our experienced grower and FarmStart trainees who will share their experiences of working on-site, and what we’ve learnt during the set up phase of this project.
You will be able see our growing methods, including our no-dig beds, and how we make the most of the North Lancashire growing conditions.
The tour will finish with a chance to sample some of the veg grown on-site and a chance to get involved.
Building our capacity to grow local food is key to delivering on health outcomes within the district. The Plot is part of a 10 year plan to grow more organic food locally and ensure it’s accessible to people. The outcomes for the session are listed above.
