More than 20 organisations are taking part in the Carlisle Plant, Food and Wellbeing Fair next month.
The free event in Bitts Park’s Victoria Gardens, has been organised by Carlisle City Council and Food Carlisle.
There will be lots of stalls in place promoting healthy living between 11am and 2pm on May 30.
Councillor Elizabeth Mallinson, Carlisle City Council’s portfolio holder for health and wellbeing, said: “Now that restrictions have been eased, we’ve organised this small-scale event to support our local communities coming out of lockdown.
“There will be around 20 stalls, with advice from composting, to growing your own produce, to taking care of your wellbeing.
“There will also be local produce available to buy. Families will be kept entertained with interactive activities, music and demonstrations. There will also be advice on staying healthy and active.”
Chair of Food Carlisle, Jane Maggs, added: “Alongside local food stalls we hope to have pizzas being made on site in an oven constructed on the day by a local potter and free fruit to take away.
“Garden clubs and allotment societies will bring their home-grown plants for purchasing at very reasonable prices and the sales help with clubs’ funds. Plant crèches will be available. It’ll be an event with good plants, good food, good ideas and will be a good day out for all.”
Stallholders will include: Cumbria Organic Gardeners and Farmers, North Cumbria Orchard Group, Helen’s Herbs, Carlisle City Council’s Healthy City team, Thriving Communities, Tullie House, Space to Talk, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, The Fruit and Veg Box Company, Sustainable Carlisle, Christine’s Kitchen, Eden Project, CCC Recycling, Warwick Bridge Corn Mill, Susan’s Farm, Hadrian Organics, Helen’s Herbs, and the Split Screen Barista.
