This Saturday (26th April 2014) sees a new workshop taking place between 1 and 3pm at the LAGS garden behind car park 5 on the Loughborough University campus: making plot markers and signs for your garden.
Labelling the plants in your vegetable and flower beds is a useful and important part of gardening, especially if you’re not the only gardener tending them! It can help you remember what plants have been grown where in the past to allow you to “rotate” them around the plot to confuse pests and minimise disease transmission.
This workshop looks at how useful and attractive signs and plant labels can be made from recycled materials such as old broken wooden pallets. It is being run by James Brydon, who is a design & technology teacher.
The event is FREE and refreshments will be available in the LAGS shed. You’re encouraged to bring some tools and materials along to help you craft your own signs: things like saws, paint, brushes and permanent markers could be useful.
