We are interested in trialling a Gardening Club at the allotments for people who are either new to having an allotment, or don’t have one at all.
The club will meet every Saturday from the 4th June until the 15th October, and members of the club will be able to work together to get an allotment from a poor state, which is how most people will take on an allotment, and to get it into a good condition.
Skills that members will learn will include
- Planning out an allotment
- Sowing seeds
- Pricking out and potting on
- Building raised beds
- Tending to plants to get them to maturity
… and many more skills that it takes to manage an allotment successfully. In addition to this, you will meet new friends, get some exersise and club members will be able to take home the vegetables that are grown, once they are ready.
The one off fee of £25 will cover the cost of materials and plants.
This is a pilot scheme and we are interested to see how it could develop for future years.
Anyone who is interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Monday 23rd May.
If we do not receive enough interested by that date, the club may not go ahead.
