Press Open Day at No-Dig Market Garden
Monday 7 September 2020
Homeacres, Alhampton, Shepton Mallet, Somerset BA4 6PZ
Guild member Stephanie Hafferty reports: ‘We have a few slots left for our press open day event at Homeacres, Charles Dowding's well known no-dig market garden. Charles is the leading expert in no-dig gardening, cropping 1/4 acre of beds biointensively. It really is extraordinary how much food is produced in a relatively small area.

‘There are two sessions, morning and afternoon and strictly by ticket only, to ensure we can maintain social distancing. It is a free event. If you would like to attend, please contact Emma Mason: firstname.lastname@example.org
‘I will be there too, guarding the (free!) cakes, courtesy of local restaurant At The Chapel, which is an excellent place to eat in nearby Bruton.
‘The Newt in Somerset, a few minutes' drive from Homeacres, has offered attendees free admission to their famous gardens (usually £20) where there is a restaurant and outdoor eating area too. The farm shop there is splendid. Not only do they sell both my books they also have a superb range of their own and locally sourced produce. So you can make a bit of a day out.
‘Homeacres garden is beautiful – for more info about the garden on Instagram and on YouTube.’
