Perfectly fitting with the Milton Keynes Heritage Open Days (HODs) “Edible England” theme, come and join our passionate team behind the Forest Garden at Westbury Arts Centre and learn how we have used permaculture principles in its creation.

Together, we will be showcasing our forest garden demonstration plot and will have a marquee exhibition and some short, informal, talks from various speakers linked to the recommendations of the National Food Strategy.

Come along to discover how to create local sustainably run community gardens that connect us to the natural world and each other in growing food, enhancing wildlife habitats and cultivating their community, and to meet like-minded people interested in knowing what we can all do to make more sustainable and healthy food choices.
Linked to the National Food Strategy, we’ll cover what we can all do to create a resilient, healthier and more sustainable food system that cares about us and our environment, and that ultimately makes healthy food choices easier and more equal for everyone.
