Learn to grow at free event

Have your say

AN EVENT has been organised to tell people how to grow their own fruit and vegetables and encourage birds and bees into their gardens.

Voluntary Action Barnsley has organised the event on Saturday in partnership with the RSPB.

It will be held the Old Moor site in the Dearne Valley, from 10.30am until 3pm, and participants will have the chance to try traditional crafts including green woodwork.

Madame Zucchini, a local entertainer, will be telling stories and making vegetable characters with families attending the free event.

Those who attend will get free entry to the RSPB reserve at Old Moor.
