Community Sunday May 2019

You are cordially invited to this month’s Community Sunday from 11.00 to 12.30 at Garthdee Field Allotments. Tea and coffee will be served at 12.30.

There is plenty to do around the communal areas of the site:

  • remove bonfire ash and tidy area (nails etc)
  • weeding South Bank
  • remove large weeds from wildflower meadow (if any)
  • pothole filling
  • orchard tidying (e.g. fruit bushes)
  • dead heading daffodils
  • etc.

Looking forward to seeing all who can make it,

Happy plotting (I’m hoping for rain any day except Sunday)

Secretary – GFAA

Seed Swopping Time

We have set up a new seed swop point in the Octagon. Thanks go to Raymond on Plot 95A for suggesting this idea and kickstarting us with some seeds.

Val’s heritage Sutherland Kale seeds are also available and if you can’t find what you want there is a wee stock of Dobies’ catalogues with the necessary GFAA discount code that will allow you to buy new seeds at the usual 40% saving.

Please feel free to donate your extra seeds and take what you need from the stockpile.

March Community Sunday

With the weather forecast as wild as it was, it wasn’t surprising that today’s squad was a wee bit smaller than usual. Luckily, they more than made up for reduced numbers with added enthusiasm.

Thanks to all who managed along.

What an effort!

We had a wonderful turnout for our Community Sunday activities today. In fact, with well over twenty plotters and volunteers there, this was our biggest ever February Community Sunday. What a start to the year!

Tuck in time!

With so many willing hands available we got a wonderful amount of work done around the site – weeding, pruning, bonfire prep, pothole filling, litter collection and much, much more. A huge thank you goes to all who found the time to come along and to all who contributed to a magnificent coffee and cake spread.

There was no room at the inn for the old lag’s club.

Community Engagement Opportunities

We had the pleasure of welcoming Stephen Bly to Garthdee Field today. Stephen is Aberdeen City Council’s Community Engagement Officer.

It was good to have the opportunity to show Stephen around and tell him something of our efforts and projects to promote active community engagement over recent years.

Better still, Stephen was able to give us all sorts of pointers and leads to possible future community collaborations and activities. Watch this space for details of new projects we hope to see started in the weeks and months ahead.
