Raymond the Jungle Tamer

How do you fancy taking on a plot looking like this?

Not for the faint-hearted eh?  Luckily, cometh the hour, cometh – Raymond the Jungle Tamer.  Just look at what Raymond (Domeracki) has achieved on Plot 95A in just a few months and during the worst winter weeks since 2010.


Congratulations Raymond – what a fantastic effort!

All Quiet on the Western Front

Pretty quiet on all fronts actually.  There was not so much as a deer’s footprint to disturb the virgin snow today – far less a plotter’s wellie tred.

Feathered Friends

These little visitors have certainly helped brighten up some cold, miserable days of late.  Am I right in thinking we have a Greenfinch? Goldfinches? and Sparrow?

These photos were taken with GFAA’s long-lensed camera – the Nikon Coolpix P900.  Remember, any GFAA member can borrow it to take photos for the website. Details below.

The carpenters cometh…

Big thanks today to our volunteers, Anja and Gordon for their time and efforts on the carpentry front.  Great job guys!

New Course: From Soil to Sky

The University of Dundee offers an online course in Citizen Science: From Soil to Sky in which participants will come to understand soil and explore global environmental soil issues while becoming citizen scientists.

Registration is open now and the course starts 19 February, takes 4 hours per week to complete and runs for 4 weeks.  As they say:

“Where can you find all sorts of useful and important information about your environment? You might be surprised to know it’s beneath your feet, in the soil. On this course you will discover interesting things about your own soil and become part of the new GROW Citizen Observatory European-wide community. You will collaborate with other growers and scientists to discover the impact global soil practices have on major issues like the environment and food growing.

Now is the time to make a difference, join us, improve your soil and become a citizen scientist!”
