    Bean Pole Day

    10:00 - 15:00Caversham Court Gardens

    Church Road, Caversham RG4 7AD

    An Econet event promoting local woodland products, plus bee and wildlife friendly gardening.

    Vegetable and ornamental plants grown by charitable organisations, and a range of beanpoles, peasticks and plant supports to grow them up for sale. Our plant supports come from locally managed coppiced woodland and willow beds and your purchase helps maintain this traditional technique.

    There are a range of activities all day including demonstrations of products using this source of traditionally managed timber. The garden kiosk is open for light refreshments.

    There will also be stalls representing a variety of local organisations including:
    -RSPB (making bird boxes, bird tables and hedgehog homes from timber offcuts)
    -BBOWT (sales and guidance on wildlife conservation)
    -FairTrade products (home made cakes and jams)
    and others.
