Show Theme 2017
Your show theme this year is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Whether reducing packaging or your carbon footprint, reusing items that still have some life left or recycling materials that would otherwise be waste we can't wait to see the creative ways that you are inspired by our 2017 theme.

Maybe your veg is grown in homemade compost, perhaps you've preserved in reused jars, it could be that you have a talent for crafting old junk into beautiful art.

However you want to support our theme and inspire others please share your ideas and efforts with us on the day.
