A market gardening collective launches a new folk music festival

A VEGETABLE GARDEN COLLECTION that sells organic vegetables plans to hold a folk music festival and seminars.

The Worthy Earth, a collection of market gardens, has announced that it will host a music festival at one of its sites.

The Worthy Earth Festival will take place in September 2022 at Dummer Down Farm.

The festival is organized by one of the founders of Worthy Earth, Harrison Fannon and will feature music from local artists, as well as seminars that will teach attendees traditional farming techniques.

Festival food will be prepared using Worthy Earth products.

Day and camping tickets will be available for purchase.

Worthy Earth was founded in 2020 by Harrison, his brother Lawrence and their friend Cody Moir.

Since its inception, the collective has grown to include three gardens across Hampshire, including one at Dummer Down Farm near Basingstoke.

The gardens grow organic vegetables and edible flowers which can be purchased as part of a seasonal vegetable box.

The festival is just the first of several new ideas the founders have for developing Worthy Earth, including new market gardens and hosting open houses.

Lawrence explained, “We plan to open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays in the future, where people can come for a ‘Field to Fork’ and ‘Pick for Order’ deal.

“For example, if someone comes in and says they want salad and beets, they can literally see us harvesting them in front of them, which I think is a pretty unique selling point.”
