About the event

On the 12th of November, Community Gardens across the Tamar & Meander valleys will throw open their gates and welcome you to explore their sites and delights! 

Each participating garden is putting its best foot forward and hosting activities to showcase its local flavour. Be it: plant & flower sales, music, BBQ, kids’ activities, games, pizza, mini-workshops, tours and composting demos. There’s sure to be something happening somewhere, that’s sure to interest everyone. 

Community gardening is a fabulous reason to get outdoors, meet new people, enjoy the fruits of the earth – and often learn new skills.
