The Edible Garden Show 2010 (19-21 March, Stoneleigh Park) is backed by the 103-member National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners (NSALG) and the Royal Agricultural Society of England.
NSALG national secretary Geoff Stokes said: "We are delighted to be an official partner of this brilliant new show. For a number of years our members have been seeking a dedicated grow-your-own event but have had to make do with attending the more traditional flower shows where fruit and vegetables have largely been the poor relation. At last we now have a national show focused purely on the wonders of grow-your-own."
Robert Merrall, Business Development Director, Royal Agricultural Society of England, said: "The Royal Agricultural Society of England is delighted to welcome The Edible Garden Show to Stoneleigh Park. We believe this innovative event has the potential to become a fixture in our calendar. It is being launched at a time when more and more people are realising the importance of producing quality food and we are therefore delighted to offer our wholehearted support to the venture."
