Michael Knight got in touch recently asking is anyone would be interested in joining a free to use an online seed swap website he has developed.
Sounds like a good idea? Check it out for yourselves via the link above.
Paul (Plot 67) and Stuart (Plot 8) were kind enough to send these photos. They are a reminder of some of the wildlife with which we share our site.
If plotters have any other photos of wildlife on their plots it would be great to have them to share here. :-)
Benji from Gwen’s Garden have asked for our help.
“Can I ask for help with the project we have in the field next to you called Gwen’s Garden. We’re a small grassroots group helping promote bio diversity in the area. And are asking for some help with donations of any spare flowers or plants preferably perennials but all is welcome.”
We’d like to work in partnership with the allotments to really promote diversity back into the area. I’ve attached are tree planting plan for winter 2020, and a link to our Facebook page and our page on its your neighbourhood site. If you can spread the word around the allotments it would be truly appreciated.
This is an excellent project and I am sure many plotters will want to help. You can reach Benji by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks go to Val on Plot 23 for suggesting this post.
Val recently attended a workshop run by the Tarland Seed Saving Network. This is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable group running in the community and led by Lizzie Shepherd. Lizzie put the attached notes together and Val thought they might be of interest to other plotters. Lizzie has given her permission for these notes to be shared. Download as PDF.
Thanks go to Sonya )Plot 97B) for suggesting this post.
This citizen science research project gives details of 14 pollinator-friendly flowers and invites participants to monitor plants and visitors in a set square of their plot.
