GFAA AGM and General Meeting


A wee reminder that our 2019 Annual General Meeting will be held at the Robert Gordon University, Ishbel Gordon Building, Room H230 on Saturday 16th November, starting at 11.00am with refreshments and the General Meeting to follow immediately after. We look forward to welcoming all our plotters and volunteers who can manage along.

Community Sunday July 2019

This Sunday is our last opportunity to get set for our It’s Your Neighbourhood assessment visit at the beginning of August. Please come along if you can spare an hour or so to help.

It’s TAMS time again

Collections for The Allotment Market Stall (TAMS) start this Thursday.

TAMS is a wonderful project that sells our surplus produce to the public and so spreads the benefits of allotment working into the wider community while at the same time making a contribution back to our GFAA funds.

Please leave any (saleable) donations you can make into the special trays by the Bothy by noon, Thursdays.

It’s BBQ time!

Saturday 13th July 2019 from 12 noon

Plotters and our volunteers, along with their families and friends, are invited to our Summer Barbecue
at the Community Orchard area of the Garthdee Field Allotments Site

Please bring your preferred BBQ food and drink (and if you can a salad or sweet to share with visitors)

There will be a Raffle with proceeds going to GFAA funds

Donations for the raffle will be gratefully received by
Gill Earle (Plot 64) Stuart Oram (Plot 8) or Norman Coutts (Plot 81)

Offers to loan BBQs would be especially helpful

Please send any queries or offers of help on the day to Gill Earle
g.earl20@btinternet.com / 07951021319

Calling All Plotters!

It’s not too late to enter your plot for the Aberdeen in Bloom Garden Competition 2019. This year’s entry form gives another wee glimpse of the glories of Sandy Inkster’s prize winning garden – as featured in the Beechgrove Garden when Jim McColl visited it.

Luckily, plots don’t have to be to this standard! Entering your plot helps fly the flag for Garthdee Field and shows support for the Council’s efforts to encourage gardening and plotting across the city.

There are a few entry forms available in the Octagon, or you can apply online using this link. Entries close 12 July.

Community Sunday June 2019

Community Sunday is this coming Sunday – we are hoping for a bumper turn out – to help us build our Arc if nothing else!
