Vacancies

We still have 33 vacant plots, so could you please help us spread the word round.
Also, if you are an existing member and would like some extra space for potatoes and squashes, you can take one of the extra plots, free of charge until the end of September 2014; all we ask is that you donate some produce for our Open Day. If you are interested, please contact Mahesh(sustainable@grow-our-own.co.uk)

Work days

We are reintroducing our monthly work day on the first Sunday of each month which will be just before the food-sharing. We would like everyone to come and give a hand even for half-an hour, anytime between 10 am and 12:30 pm. This will help you make up your contribution to the scheme and is good fun.

Apart from general maintenance tasks, we have planned a specific task for Sunday 6th April: to install an irrigation system for growers who have plots in either side of the Red-shed (plots 125, 125A and 146, 146A).

Once the system is installed, it will increase the supply of water in the area and we won’t need to compete with our neighbours for access to water.
Our friend Willy will be there to help us install the system and explain how it works. But before that, we need to dig the trench and bury the pipe. Every little bit of help counts, so please come if you can. It is important that you learn how to maintain the system in future.
