I have a different question
If you have any further questions or queries about Jekka’s HerbFest, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Jekka and the herb farm, Jekka’s, have long been supporters and fans of Putting Down Roots in Bristol which is a horticultural therapy and training project run by leading homelessness charity St Mungo’s. It uses gardening as a tool to help people in their recovery by helping to build people’s self-esteem, confidence and sociability. Read about this fantastic organisation in our blog.
We have called on our friends in Putting Down Roots to help sift and move the recycled topsoil for the herb beds in Jekka’s Herb Garden, which have been created from green waste from the herb farm. Jekka’s Herb Garden will be a beautiful focal point of Jekka’s HerbFest.
As a token of our appreciation and our wish to support such a great organisation, we have given all HerbFest ticket purchasers the option to give back and make a charitable contribution by buying a “Giving Back” ticket at £5 with your order. Simply add to your order and check out as normal.
Thank you for your support,
