Avon Organic Group with Mandy Barber, Incredible Vegetables.

Mandy grows perennial edible roots, shoots, tubers and rhizomes, leafy greens and alliums. Her growing space is a diverse polyculture of perennials, annuals, self-sowing edibles and plants for pollinators, wildflowers working alongside an abundance of edimentals and perennial vegetables, a beautiful ‘Food Glade’ and haven for all kinds of life.

In her talk for AOG Mandy will cover:

A bit of background of how she started
Why grow perennial vegetables – pros and cons
Polycultures of perennials, annuals, edimentals and self sowing plants, creating a diverse, resilient and beautiful edible garden
The best perennial vegetables to start with.

Note: Mandy will bring some perennial plants and seeds for sale on the night. Tickets on sale in April.

Live streamed from The Station with doors open there for people attending in person at 6.30pm for informal mingle in The Engine Room, the large and airy room on the Ground floor; the actual talk will start at 7pm when people can access the talk online on Zoom. AOG will also provide all ticket holders with a link to a recording of the talk shortly after for a time limited period.
