A GROW Your Own stall, run by environmental group Transition Town Bromsgrove (TTB), will be at the town's farmers' market in the High Street on Saturday (May 12).
It follows on from the group's Buy From Bromsgrove stalls at previous farmers' markets, where residents could buy local produce, all grown within ten miles of the town centre, for reasonable prices.
Group spokesperson Alison Horton said "We're encouraging people to grow more of their own food in their gardens at this month's stall.
"Growing your own food benefits us by keeping us fit, reducing our food miles and carbon footprints and also reducing the weekly cost of food shopping, which is particularly important in the present economic climate."
As well as the produce, the Worestershire Master Composters will be on hand throughout the day to give advice on how to make good quality compost. There will also be a selection of locally-sourced and coppiced hazel garden supports from David Ward, along with a seed and seedling swap shop. There, people can bring surplus seeds and seedlings to the town centre stall and exchange them with others.
