Glebelands City Farmers welcomes visitors

12:50pm Tuesday 3rd June 2014

GLEBELANDS City Growers in Sale will play host to the ninth annual Open Farm Sunday this weekend (June 8).

The nationwide event, organised by Linking Environment and Farming, gives visitors a chance to learn how their food is grown.

The day is not all about vegetables, though - there will be tractors and machinery on display and people can also learn about bees and bee-keeping.

Annabel Shackleton, manager of OFS, said: “Visitors will get a fascinating insight into aspects of the countryside that they wouldn’t normally see.”

The free event at the Glebelands market garden off Glebelands Road is open 11am-4pm with guided tours at 11.30am and 2pm.
