The Edible Garden Show and Good Life Live

This year's Great British Growing Awards are sponsored by The Edible Garden Show and Good Live Life. With a programme packed full of interesting speakers and useful advice and a location that's set to be bursting at the seams with stands to visit, this event is the place to go if you're interested in sustainable living.

Next year's event (which takes place from March 11 ‑ 13) promises to be the best yet, with speakers such as James Wong already confirmed. 2016 will also see the show return to its roots at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire. Early bird tickets (those bought before September 2015) are only £8 ‑ so what are you waiting for? For more information visit theediblegardenshow.co.uk
