Birmingham once was the kingpin of the world for innovation and the industrial revolution and once again all eyes are on the city for the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Roots to Fruits are installing some features within the St Thomas Church Peace Gardens as a memorial for the games. 

We need your help to grow plants from all over the globe and build features to be installed within the park. Therefore we are putting on some FREE practical master classes around seed sowing and growing plants and building mosaics at our centre based at Oakdene Nurseries (51 Chester Rd Streetly B742HH). 

Paul Ensell will be revealing his professional skills developed and tweaked over the last 55 years  to reveal the top tips on plant production. You will also have the opportunity to help design and build a permanent feature for the garden by helping to construct a mosaic remembrance slab for the garden.
