Spring really is on the way, and to celebrate the new season the team at the Hemel Food Garden project are planning to throw open their doors and welcome visitors next month.

The Sunnyside Rural Trust project will be hosting an open day at the site, off Two Waters Road in Hemel Hempstead, on Saturday, March 22.

The event will include a masterclass from horticulturist Sarah Barker on growing your own vegetables.

There are also hanging basket workshops where visitors will be able to create their own hanging basket which will be looked after in the Trust’s greenhouse until ready to hang outside.

There is a charge for the workshop which must be pre-booked.

You can find a booking form online at, ring 01442 863364 or go to the farm shop at the Food Garden site – behind the K2 Balti restaurant off Two Waters Way between 10am and 3am, Monday to Saturday.
