We hoped Miss Rennie’s Primary 4/5 Class would rise to the biodiversity treasure hunt challenge and find it fun: and of course they did not disappoint.
Getting to the big message, but where are the boys?
Ah, there they are…
So what’s the big message?
Did we have fun? We sure did!
Welcome to the last of the summer’s Community Sundays on 18 September (before the BBQ the following weekend).
In addition to some regular maintenance work (e.g. pothole filling, site tidying, light pruning in the orchard), would anyone with stones which are not required kindly bag these and lay them at your plot boundary? We have a need to extend the bed of stones to enable lorries to deliver leaves/chips/etc to the bottom bins.
Some of you will have noticed that there will be restrictions to traffic on Garthdee Road on Sunday morning, but we believe that you will be able to access the allotment area during this time.
We look forward to seeing as many of you who can make it, for team work, and coffee & cakes from 1230.
Gordon picked a pretty hot day for his first visit onsite as a Volunteer Member of GFAA, but that did not stop him putting in a full shift for us.
Gordon is a keen gardener at home in Portlethen and had six years experience of volunteering with a gardening project near Gourdon, which unfortunately closed down recently. Gordon will be helping us with general site maintenance on Tuesdays from now on.
Thanks to Vinny and Anne for passing on this excellent shot of a hard-at-work Stuart.
Any guesses as to what he is about to plant?
