Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming, have over 100 gardens already signed up to take part in the Big Dig. Events are taking part all over the country between 21st and 23rd March, with 22nd being the main Big Dig Day. The events provide an opportunity for anyone to experience volunteering for a community garden project.
The Big Dig Day will tap into and channel the enthusiasm that exists both for gardening and volunteering and promote the benefits that growing food can have on the health and wellbeing of individuals and their communities.
Several gardens across County Durham have expressed an interest in taking part this year. You can find out who they are and sign up to volunteer at: http://www.bigdig.org.uk/durham.
