Engaging Worthing in responding positively and creatively to energy descent
Grow your love of gardening and green spaces at Sow & Grow 2015
Whether you're a keen gardener or a complete beginner, interested in local food, recycling and up-cycling, conservation or other environmental issues around sustainable living, there will be something for everyone at this year's event. Activities include free inspirational talks, activities for children, a variety of stalls and of course seeds and plants to swap and buy.
Entertainment will be provided by the South Down Folk Singers and Worthing's very own Town Crier Bob Smytherman will be announcing events and calling the raffle. There will be a pop up cafe as well stalls from local community groups that promote sustainable living, wildlife and conservation organisations.
There will be some new food groups represented too, including the Catchbox scheme and Sussex Food Sovereignty. Sussex Green Living Network is joining us and there will be creative ways to think about recycling.
