Get back to nature and learn to grow your own healthy grub at Lurgan Market next week (Thursday, May 26).

Organised by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, as part of the Northern Ireland Year of Food & Drink 2016, the month of May is dedicated to ‘We Grow’ celebrating the good life and learning how to ‘grow your own’ and become more self-sufficient.

Taking place from 9am – 3pm, a variety of local suppliers and exhibitors will show shoppers how to compost & plant their own veg. There will also be wormery demonstrations, adult and children planting seed activities as well as some freebies while goods last including and complimentary tea/coffee – a great day out for keen gardeners and novices alike!

There will be lots of activity on the day with local Eco-Schools, reps from Taghnevan Allotments and Men’s Shed coming along to display their experience and advice.
