Programme for the GARDEN AND PLANT SHOW
The United Nations has declared 2021 the 'International Year of Fruits and Vegetables'. Key aims include raising awareness of the benefits of the consumption of fruits and vegetables for health and nutrition; to argue that an increased intake of fruits and vegetables can prevent disease, and to stimulate international efforts to increase fruit and vegetable production in a sustainable manner, reducing losses and waste throughout the supply chain, from production to consumption.
The programme therefore includes demonstrations, walks and information sessions about: Preparations of food from wild foraging, edible flowers and plants, roses grown for their properties as healthy food, food safety, useful insects, biodiversity, bees (plants), sustainable (and rotational) gardening, soil health and the circular economy of food.
