Sustainable St Albans Week!

Sustainable St Albans Week begins this Saturday, and promises 100+ exciting events focusing on sustainability in the district, including walks, talks, outdoor activities, workshops, exhibitions and, of course, a FoodSmiles Open Day and Composting Workshop! See the whole programme here, and come along to join us for a tour of our farm on Saturday 19th from 12-4pm.

19th November, 12-4pm
FoodSmiles St Albans, Hammonds End Farm, Hammonds End Lane, off Redbourn Lane, Harpenden, AL5 2AY. When you enter the farmyard, turn left after the barn on the left and find us through the wooden gate. (Please drive very slowly in the farmyard area.) Strong shoes are essential as the ground can be uneven underfoot, and please bring gardening gloves if you'd like to join in with the work.

Come along for a tour and to see what we do, or get involved with the day's seasonal tasks, which will likely include planting seedlings in our polytunnels, sowing broad beans and green manures, and chopping and mixing material for the compost heap. You'll also be welcome to ask questions about growing your own at home.  Admission is free, and tea and hot soup will be provided, along with a selection of cakes made with vegetables! 

The afternoon will include a Practical Composting Workshop from 2-3pm - if you'd like to join in and learn about composting at home, please book your place by emailing us at

We look forward to seeing you there!
