Big Dig Brum has begun!

Fifty or sixty people were expected. My guess is well over 150 turned up.

Big Dig Brum began at Birmingham Botanical Gardens on Wednesday evening. Enthusiastic, lively, interesting people, a heart-warmingly friendly bunch who gave of their all in the break-out session. Thank you everyone.

Special thanks to organisers/speakers: writer and horticulturalist Alys Fowler, Mike Hardman from BCU,  Lee Hale and Clare Savage from Winterbourne’s Urban Veg, Vic Acland (Chair of the Board of Trustees at the Botanical Gardens) and last but by no means least, the instigator of the whole shebang and MC on the night, Chris Blythe.

Chris, Mike Hardman and I will be collating and categorising everyone’s ideas this weekend. We’ll publish everything in a blogpost (or two) here. Watch this space . . .

    Brilliant event. The start of something very important. The Big Dig will have a huge anount to offer. But I think this kind of event can even extend beyond the Big Dig in terms of iots potential. Well done to all of those involved.
