Local residents take part in gardening workshop

Residents in Stockbridge Village explored the world of gardening and developed their skills in a recent gardening masterclass.

Preparations for this year’s Knowsley Flower Show were well underway at the workshop where the show’s committee shared their expertise in growing plants and vegetables. 

From planting seeds to nurturing them in the best way, the gardening novices were shown how to grow and keep cucumber plants, tomato plants, chai plants, and more. 

Residents could choose to enter these plants in the show or decide to use the tips and tricks they were taught to grow their own outside of the session.

The workshop wasn’t all focused on entering the Knowsley Flower; those who attended discovered all of the benefits of growing own produce. 

The team from Knowsley’s Incredible Edible community growing project came along to encourage people to grow their own food which can help you to eat more healthily and save money on food bills.

The workshop took place at Craig’s Community Centre and was possible thanks to funding from ForHousing. 

The community garden at Craig’s Community Centre on Little Moss Hey is currently undergoing a renovation and the team are eager for the local community to be involved.  

If you’d like some support with developing your growing skills, come and see the Incredible Edible team and volunteers at the garden every Friday between 2pm and 8pm until end of November 2019. You can also visit the garden every day of the week between 9am and 8pm.

If you’d like to find out more about growing your own produce, visit the Incredible Edible website. If you’d like to find out more about entering your plants, flowers, vegetables or even crafts, in the Knowsley Flower Show on 4 August, visit the website at www.knowsleyflowershow.com
