There is such a growing interest in having some of your own herbs, fruit and veg outside your back door, simply by growing your own even if you have very limited space. Nothing beats going out to chop some herbs into a fresh salad, pick rosemary for your lamb dish, or dig a few potatoes. We love the ease of it, really using what is in season to boost the flavour of everthing on your plate. Everyone loves being outdoors and gardening needn't be such a slog, especially if you don't have much time - just start off simply and easliy with a few items and you will get the bug!
Of course there are lots of ways to get your garden into shape first and a newcomer to this years festival in the new Living and Lifetsyle area is Greener Space, who specialise in and around East Devon in organic gardening. Visit them on the Green during the Food Festival for advice and inspiration.
