One Seed Forward

The splendid, One Seed Forward Project is getting ready for another bumper year.

Plotters wanting to know more or take part can check out the details on their website.

Manure Deliveries

Happy New Year Plotters,

If you have been to the site recently, you will have noticed that a full 10 Tonne load of cow dung has been delivered to the Primary School Plot.  This is for use in the Community Garden.  Please do not use it for other purposes. However, another full load for use by plotters has been ordered and we expect delivery to the top of the site in the course of this month (January).

This second 10 Tonne load will be for the use of all GFAA plotters.  In the first instance, please take only a barrow load or two for use on your plot.  This is to make sure that everyone gets a fair allocation for a start. More may be available later in the year.

Calling All Plotters: Community Sunday

 

Dear Plotters,

This is a call for this month’s Community Sunday, this Sunday at 11.00 (weather permitting), with coffee/tea and cakes from 12.30 at the Octagon.
There’s plenty to do on site:
– fill potholes
– complete bulb planting at Octagon (partially completed by Volunteers)
– general site tidy
– work to limit puddle collection near bottom bins
– tree trimming, top car park
– etc.
Looking forward to seeing all who can make it for some light work (and the coffee/tea and cakes too),
Best Regards
Michael Hart
Secretary – GFAA

Trees and Bees Survey

The, It’s your Neighbourhood programme, had trees, bees and butterflies as a special focus this year and this prompted us to take a look at the trees and bees found on site.  We decided to conduct a little informal research and thanks goes to all who contributed ideas and information.

Our first report of interim findings is attached via the link below.  All comments, additions or corrections will be gratefully received.
