Hundreds of people came to see the Lincolnshire Master Gardener stall which was within the Lincolnshire County Council stand with other services from Public Health.
I, along with two West Lindsey volunteers, Steven and Annabelle, had a great time talking to people from all walks of life, made over 200 pots with people of all ages and from all backgrounds, helping them ‘Give it a Grow’ with confidence.
The interest in the programme was immense, with people from Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and North Lincolnshire sadly disappointed to find out that we don’t offer support in those areas – yet!
The two days went well with questions about tomatoes, space and time saving tips as well as the health benefits of growing you own.
It was really nice to meet an ex-manager of a homeless shelter we used to support and hear her kind words about the positive impact the programme had on her service users. That is what makes this programme special.
And the weather was nice this year too!
