Flower Festival - St. Lawrence Church, Eastcote. 23rd - 25th June 2023
We were delighted that the EHS was invited to take part in the Flower Festival at St Lawrence Church on 23, 24 and 25 June. The overall theme of the Flower Show was "Renewal, Transition and Hope". There were 27 beautiful floral displays around the church including one from Eastcote Horticultural Society. The title of our display was “Recycle, Reuse, Regenerate” by one of our members, Judith Jenkins.
The concepts of zero waste and a low carbon footprint were demonstrated through the recycling and reuse of containers destined for the tip and plant material sourced from our members’ gardens. From tiny seeds new life appears. This transition puts food on our plates later in the season or flowers to brighten our gardens and provides habitat for wildlife. These are important factors to the Society, founded in 1940, at a time when “grow your own” was a survival tactic introduced during wartime food rationing.
