BEAN POLES AND PAPER POTS

I had a happy, sunny Saturday last week at the Spring Gardening Fair organized by Down to Earth CoOp (Stroud).

Right next to the bustling Stroud Farmer’s Market we were in a perfect spot and attracted a constant stream of people keen to find out more about local food growing projects. You could buy plants, pea sticks and  bean poles and discover all about composting from Down to Earth. Transition Stroud had a stall and we were promoting the  Edible Open Gardens  2013  web site which we are just launching.

I was demonstrating making newspaper pots which is the ideal way to grow a wide range of plants – French beans, cucumbers, squashes etc.. See a video of this demonstration at –
