Edible Open Gardens in Stroud this weekend

Here is a video of the Edible Open Gardens launch in Stroud on the weekend that I have put together to advertise the weekend of 37 open edible gardens, guided walks and workshops on 9th/10th July 2011. It is all about growing more food locally - and many of the gardens feature potatoes bought at our potato day!! In this video we hear about the event and from local food organisations.
