TOMORROW - Avon Organic Group Invite you to an evening with Tim Foster - Local author & lecturer in organic horticulture
'Growing in Greenhouses & Polytunnels"

Thursday, 22nd March 2018 at 7pm
The Station (the old fire station), Silver Street, Bristol. BS1 2AG

What would you grow? Growing under cover enables us to cultivate a wider variety of plants from warmer climates and to extend the season for edible staples. Experimenting with unusual plants or sticking with familiar varieties, there is a lot to be said for having some cover on the plot. Tim has a wealth of experience and can give us pointers and inspiration for increasing our produce.

Admission: £5 Visitors / £2 Members
