Huntingdonshire’s Community Plant and Tree Nursery in Godmanchester, owned by Huntingdonshire District Council, is holding a special open day, with activities for all the family, on Saturday 4 June, 11am to 3pm.  There will be vintage and classic cars, face painting, handmade jewellery for sale, scarves and bags, handmade soaps and bath bombs, aloe vera products, a barbecue, homemade cakes and, of course, an opportunity to buy nursery grown plants. Other activities for children include planting sunflower seeds and guessing the number of peas in a jar.  

Cllr Robin Carter, whose executive responsibilities include parks and countryside, said: "As well as giving people the opportunity to see what our Community Nursery has to offer, there will be fun activities for all the family. For anyone who hasn’t discovered this hidden gem, the four acre site includes a vegetable garden, a cut flower garden, an orchard growing over 20 local varieties of heritage apple, an apiary and bee garden, a drought garden, a nuttery, a rose garden and a tree nursery where trees are grown from locally collected seeds.  Why not come along to the open day and take a look? You could pick up some ideas to use in your own garden and buy some plants too."

The Community Plant and Tree Nursery is situated behind 25 Park Lane, Godmanchester.  Limited parking is available on site. Further pay and display parking is available a short walk away at Bridge Place, Huntingdon.
