This event is a chance to see my Backyard Farm, to learn about composting, rainwater harvesting, growing vegetables and fruit, all in a small space. I have composted all my kitchen and garden waste to make into nutritious compost that this year has grown beans, carrots, potatoes and tomatoes. It is easy to care for and easy to harvest from.
Saturday 11th July 2pm – 4pm
2pm-4pm at 32 Alder Road off Ladypool Rd Birmingham B12 8BS

Tree Hunt at the Carnival

Residents at the Balsall Heath Carnival will be able to join a hunt for 7 different kinds of trees growing in Pickwick Park, the Carnival site beside St Paul’s Road. The event starts at 12.00 on Saturday 4th July. Looks like it will be scorching, so what better than to admire some cool and shady trees? Our neighbourhood would be even hotter and more polluted without all the trees that have been planted over the last 30 years.
See you at the BHIOP stall. John Newson
