Worcester community garden held its first ever Eco Fair on Sunday 27 August. The event proved a huge success.
Almost 400 people visited the stalls that were on site throughout the day, including Nelly’s Delhi vegan Indian street food, our own pop up café, a freshly pressed fruit juice stall, and stalls selling plastic free products, artwork and bird and bat boxes. Other stalls included Transition Worcester repair café, Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, Worcestershire Vegans and Vegetarians, Extinction Rebellion plus Chris Russell from At The End of the Garden ran a popular wood whittling session.
Thanks to all the stall holders and of course to our amazing volunteers who worked so hard on the day, and in the run up, in order to make it such a successful event.
The event brought in some welcome revenue for the community garden, which will allow us to proceed with important project work on the site.
The delightful video below was put together by Anda, our brilliant social media officer, and it captures perfectly the atmosphere of the day.
Thank you BBC Hereford & Worcester for the Make A Difference green category award
Our trustee Steve commented that it was an honour for WCG to have been nominated and a testament to our amazing volunteers who have helped to turn our community garden into such a vibrant and relevant community resource.
Jon, Clare, Louise and Steve went to the event and Steve was interviewed live on Hereford and Worcester BBC radio this morning.
We’re hoping this award and the publicity will encourage more visitors and volunteers to come and see what we do and see why we have won an award for it.
