Stunning!

Our wild flower area has been simply stunning for weeks now.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the hard work to get it re-established this year and especially Michael who kept faith with the original idea of a wild flower garden after the difficulties of our first efforts.

How lucky are we?

The site was looking great in the sunshine this afternoon after lots of hard work to get it ready for our upcoming IYN assessment.  The new Octagon was a real picture.

This cheeky chappie also seemed pleased to be on site and was clearly appreciative of Gordon Mitchell’s efforts on the bird feeding front.

TAMS Success

Our first TAMS collection for the new season got off to a super start today with a haul of rhubarb, blackcurrants, gooseberries, beans, swedes and kale set out for pick up.

Thanks to all who contributed and volunteered surplus stuff.  Remember TAMS collect every Thursday at 15.00 and net profits come back to GFAA to help fund our site maintenance activities.

It’s TAMS Time

The Allotment Market Stall (TAMS) project is about to start its collections for the new season.

TAMS collects any surplus produce plotters want to see go to a good cause and sells it over the weekend.  The profits generated are then returned to GFAA as a contribution to our running costs.  It’s a real win-win arrangement.  Leave your contributions by the Bothy please.

If you have stuff on your plot you want to donate but find it difficult to get down to put it out for TAMS collection drop an email to webhelper [at] gmail.com and we will arrange for the volunteer squad to pick it up and put it in place – but please be specific about what is to be taken!
