Stroud Valleys Project is also starting a six-weeks veg-growing course on Tuesday 19th March, 10am-1pm. The food growing course is designed for people who want to get more confident to grow their own food. Ivi Szaboova, who runs the allotment course, said: “The spring growing season is finally here. If you want to grow lovely veg with next to no food miles, have some fun and learn the allotment basics in a supportive group, this is your chance.”

The course will take place at Bisley Old Road allotments and will cost £45 (£31.50p for people in receipt of benefits). SVP can help with fees for people on low incomes. For more information contact Ivi Szaboova on 01453 753358 or ivi@stroudvalleysproject.org
