Community Allotment Group: working sessions 2018
22nd March 2018: First weekly session for the Community Allotment this year. Despite the chilly afternoon, we were well attended and did some warming jobs like digging in the green manure to enrich the soil. We also harvested some lovely leeks and the last of the winter kale. We were joined today by Pam from START, an NHS initiative which aims to help people through support, transition and recovery. We hope they will send some volunteers to come and enjoy gardening with our friendly group!
Allotment session 8th March: A lovely sunny afternoon after last week's snow. Eight allotmenteers came out for a breath of fresh air. We sieved compost to top the beds, added odd bits of wood to the bonfire pile and did general tidying up.
Thursday 1st February. The community allotment meeting was well attended this month and we enjoyed a lovely sunny afternoon. Tasks included tidying the pollinator bed, relocating a large sedum plant, cutting back in the herb garden, installing new posts and wires for the grape vine and sorting out the shelves in the shed - probably the tidiest they'll be this season!
