Identifying our trees

In support of the It’s Your Neighbourhood 2017 theme – Birds, Bees and Trees – we have begun to survey and identify the trees around our site.

Marion (Plot 88) has created a prototype of a label we could use to identify each tree for interested plotters and visitors.

However, we need your help.  Can we have suggestions please as to materials and finishes that might be used to weather-proof the labels?

Community Sunday – Huge Thanks!

I’d like to thank everyone who turned out to help on yesterday’s Community Sunday, plotters and friends from RGU and MacMillan – indeed even Mr Toad Jnr!  With so many hands available we got through a tonne of tasks and the new style General Meeting generated all sorts of good ideas for funding, better gardening and wider community engagement. It was super to see so many old hands and new faces on the day.  Thanks to all who managed along and for the bakers and makers who produced such a wonderful spread for the coffee and cake session.

Community Sunday 16 July

Stuart

This coming Sunday – 16 July – is Community Sunday.  We are hoping for a good turnout of plotters as it is one of the last before our annual, It’s Your Neighbourhood Assessment Visit.  We want to get the site into good shape.

We will follow the usual format, starting at 11.00 and stopping for coffee and cake at 12.30 or so.  However, as a wee experiment we are planning to hold a General Meeting at the same time.  The purpose of the General Meeting is to gather plotters’ views on priorities and issues of current concern and for the future.

We hope this will be a convenient arrangement for plotters and will help improve communication within the Association.  I look forward to seeing you you on the day.

 

The Great Garthdee Biodiversity Challenge

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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Late Summer BBQ

It was great to see so many at our BBQ at the weekend – and especially so many kids.  Thanks to Gill for all her hard work organising things and to Michael and Marion for the treasure hunt and Vinny for the trailer tours – always a success!!  In fact, thanks to all those who came along and helped make it such a success.
