When we learnt how hard organisers were having to work to put these shows on, we thought it would be useful to hold a forum to bring about change and entice more people to get involved and celebrate what they’ve grown in their gardens and allotments.  

On Thursday 17 March, we are lucky enough to be joined by representatives from the Royal Horticultural Society’s Affiliated Societies team at Castle Gardens in Sherborne from 2pm – 4pm.
