All allotment associations must not only look at the needs of allotmenteers today but those of the future. We need younger generations to take up allotmenteering and have young people learn skills that are essential to the sustainability of the site. As peoples’ lives change, we need to be able to offer them allotment gardens that are manageable within the time they have available.
This can be a three part gift and a perfect way to recycle plastic plant pots, paper, string, bags…
Gaynor, the talented artist and sculptress who created the magnificent allotment cockerel was so impressed with our site during a recent visit she has offered to donate her time and skills to create a new sculpture for the Growing Academy on Plot 3.
So, if you have any old metal tools that you no longer want, (it doesn't matter if they are broken or rusty!) please drop them into the 2 metal bins in the Polytunnel on Plot 3.
Thank you for your donations.
Do you have fruit on your plot that is going to waste?
