We’re after your old and pre loved wellies to create a sea of flowering boots as part of the festival celebrations across Hebden Bridge in July!
The Open Gardens are back this year as part of a Hebden Open weekend in collaboration with Open Studio’s (7 – 9th July.) As part of both the festival and the Hebden Open weekend we have roped in local gardening experts Her Outdoors to help people plant up wellies with whatever plants they want, as well as to do some guerrilla welly planting at secret locations around town.
So if you have outgrown, leaky or no longer wanted wellies please drop them off at the Town Hall (there’s a trug next to the map chair.) If you’d like to plant your own wellies Her Outdoors have created a step by step guide to help you which you can download here or pick up from the Town Hall (and help yourself to wellies too if you need them!)
We are also still welcoming applications from more people with big or small gardens to open their gates to the public – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to take part.
