Dig for Victory Garden – Anderson Shelter with food crops sown on top!

The garden is a realistic working portrayal of a war-time Dig for Victory garden which is open to the public, along with the 1940's house on the last Sunday of every month.

The garden is managed by volunteers - following exactly the war-time recommendations of the Ministry of Food – right down to their cropping plan.

Using 1940's materials and resources the garden provides a year-round supply of vegetables to supplement the meagre war-time rations.

Surplus plants - both vegetables and flowers are available for sale and and seasonal organic vegetables are also on sale on a "pick-your-own" basis subject to availability.

"Potato Pete" would be really pleased!

For details visit the charity's website at www.lincolnsfields.co.uk or e-mail: info@lincolnsfields.co.uk. Tel: 01923 233841
