Storytelling for a Greener World with Jonathon Porritt and Alida Gersie: 11 April, 7.30pm; Stroud Subscription  Rooms. How can environmental organisations use storytelling to engage visitors, students, members, staff and the community with nature? And enable pro-environmental change?

Spring Gardening Event: Subscription Rooms forecourt in Stroud between 10am and 3pm on 12th April. As usual we've arranged it to coincide with National Beanpole Week and will have beanpoles for sale as well as veg and ornamental plants, fruit trees, a seed swap, willow baskets and crafts, home composting, information & advice and a raffle for a Quince tree!

We will also be launching our organically grown and/or heirloom plants range - most of the seeds we've saved ourselves, sown in home-made compost and looking great! On the day there will be a variety of peppers and tomatoes as well as some broad beans, with other veg plants available to order for the end of May.
