Kitchen Garden Talks Tent

Grow it yourself!

The Kitchen Garden Talks tent is a brand new talks area in the heart of the Gardeners' Grow&Eat zone. It's the place to come for informal discussions on the benefits of growing your own ingredients and cooking with them. 

Hosted by Jim Buttress and Matt Biggs, with a packed schedule of talks including the Gardeners' World presenters and local BBC gardening experts, these informative and entertaining talks will cater for everyone, from those just starting out to those that have been growing it themselves for years.
