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

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!

Community Sunday February

Diary Dates

I know it’s hard to believe right now, but this permafrost will lift and the growing season is just around the corner – or perhaps I’ve just been driven round the bend.

For many plotters the Gone to Seed Tarland Seed Swap and Potato Day event marks the start of the season. This community-based event is a great place to exchange locally grown, traditional varieties of vegetable and flower seeds, with many examples available free.

You will find links to the event on our Diary Page via the tab above. The Diary also gives advance notice of our Community Sunday dates for the year ahead – I know you would not want to miss them!

Community Sunday November 2018

We are hoping for a bumper turnout this coming Sunday for our last Community Sunday of the year.  It will be a chance to meet our new plotters and volunteers, celebrate a season full of successes and prepare our site for the winter ahead.

Please come along and give us an hour or so of your time if you can.
