On a beautiful autumn day we celebrated our 20th birthday party. 300 people came along to see our new eco-building, have a nose at our vegetables, make a hat, see the bees, eat some cake, drink a smoothie, even use the compost loo and enjoy the last of the sunshine.

* All money raised on the day will be doubled by Santander, but we still need a few thousand pounds to finish the shed. If you can help or would like to become a Friend of the Forest Garden and make monthly standing orders, please get in touch.
