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.

Upcoming Climate Week

Sonya on Plot 97b suggested this post. Thanks Sonya.

Aberdeen City Council is organising a series of lunchtime talks in Marischal College as part of Climate Week North East. Further details are available on their website.

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.

Today’s Terrific Turnout

A big thank you goes to all of our plotters who found the time to turn out for our last Community Sunday of 2018.  It was super to see 24 on site with a combination of new faces and old lags.

With so many willing hands we got through a mountain of seasonal tasks, including a wonderful tidy up of the Primary Plot and raised beds, South Bank planting, lots of leaf gathering and pothole filling.

Of course, you can’t have a Community Sunday without a resident comedian:  this time thanks go to Ron (Plot 65A).

I think we can say, a good time was had by all.  Thanks again, everyone.  (With apologies to Peter, Jacqui, Helen, Stan, Angela, Gavin, Trish, Norman and Mary who somehow missed out on getting their photos taken. Thanks too, to all of the magnificent bakers for a brilliant spread at Coffee and Cake time.

General Meeting Follow Ups

A full report of our recent General Meeting will be along soon, but these bits of information were requested ASAP, so here they are.

The James Hutton Institute offers a soil testing service via Hutton Soils (thanks to Bruce Plot 79 for this tip).

The slides from Fiona Swapp’s fascinating talk are available on her blog.

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.
