To celebrate Portsmouth’s community gardens and precious green spaces, Food Portsmouth are organising the city’s first Open Gardens Day.
On Saturday 1st July, 15 sites across the city will be open and accessible to visitors to show off what they do best. Volunteers will demonstrate how easy it is to grow fruit, vegetables or herbs – even in dense urban areas – and how to get involved in what’s going on in the city.
Gardens will be open from 12 noon to 2pm. All you need to do is drop by, say hello and see how good it feels to #GetGrowing!
