Buckingham is to have its first Harvest Fair, where people can swap home-grown produce.

To be held on Sunday, September 30, in the cattle pens area, it will give people the opportunity to swap home-grown produce, seeds, jams, preserves and recipes.

There will be demonstrations of an apple press and a rocket stove, and advice on allotment gardening, knitting and crocheting.

It is hoped local groups such as bee-keepers, master composters and nature conservation groups will take part.

The Fair is being organised by Buckingham Town Council and Transition Buckingham.

John Mortimer, of Transition Buckingham, said: “We are a market town in the middle of ancient agricultural land.

“Now, as much as any time, we should be able to connect to the land, its produce, and those who are involved in growing and producing from the land.”
