2017 SHOW – Grow It, Eat It
Our fun-filled product show, organised with other members of Bath Area Growers, will take place at Bath Organic Group community garden on Lower Common West allotments on Sunday 3rd September.
The emphasis is on tastiness of the produce, not on its appearance (apart from the art/craft categories, of couse!) The show is open to the public from 1.30 – 4.30 pm, and everyone gets a chance to “judge” the produce by awarding stickers their 10 favourite
2016 SHOW – Grow It, Eat It
This was held at Bath Organic Group on Sunday, 4th September. The show is organised by Bath Area Growers, of which the Allotments Association is a member.
2015 ALTERNATIVE PRODUCE SHOW – Grow It Eat It
Was held on Sunday 6th September at Bath Organic Group community garden. We were really fortunate with the weather – it was a lovely warm day and BOG’s garden looked absolutely fantastic. We had over 120 visitors and received very good feedback with people thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to taste the entries and take part in the apple juicing and children’s activities. However, there were not very many entries from allotment tenants who are not actively involved in Bath Area Growers. We would really welcome your feedback on what we can do to improve the show for next year.
THE ALTERNATIVE PRODUCE SHOW 2013
We teamed up with other members of Bath Area Growers (BAGs) to run a joint produce show on Sunday, 25th August. It was a show with a difference because it focused on creativity rather than competition.
There was an unusual list of classes, broad enough to include something for everyone. (Entries accepted on the morning – the show will be open to the public between 1.30 – 5.00 pm. Venue: New Oriel Hall, Larkhall. Downloads: Leaflet, entry form, poster, seed packet template.)
