July Community Sunday

This Sunday, 19 July, is our next Community Sunday. It would be great to have a good turnout – there is lots to do for sure. Sorry, but we still can’t serve coffee and cake under the COVID restrictions, but feel free to bring your own and we can have an appropriately-distanced coffee and blether at the end.

Usual arrangements – meet 11.00, work till 12.30, then a coffee and blether in small, distanced, groups we hope.

Good News – TAMS is Back!

Greg Welsh from the Allotment Market Stall team has been in touch to say that they feel that they can now re-start collections of surplus produce from allotment sites. Here’s what he has to say:


Hello there !I hope that everybody is doing well and you have been able to make the best of the recent tough time. On my last visit to the allotment, plots seemed to be looking better than ever.

An open air stall providing fresh local vegetables is especially valuable at this time, and after much uncertainty earlier in the year we are glad now to be able to go ahead with TAMS. I am pleased to tell you that TAMS will be starting up very soon, with the first collection on Thursday 23rd July.

We will have a Friday stall at both Seaton and Duthie Parks and a Saturday stall at Victoria Park – the same as last year.


Thank you, Greg Welsh, Stall Coordinator


GFAA have always been big supporters of TAMS and we hope this will continue this year. Remember, “profits” from sales are returned to GFAA and make a significant contribution to our funds.

Community Sunday June 2020

UPDATE: Sorry, today’s COMMUNITY SUNDAY CANCELLED DUE TO BAD WEATHER.

You are cordially invited to this month’s Community Sunday (June 21) from 11.00 to 12.30 at Garthdee Field Allotments. With regret there will be no communal coffee and cake session at the close and we will have to observe strict social distancing, while working in small groups, but there is plenty to do safely around the communal areas of the site e.g.

remove bonfire ash and tidy area (nails etc)
weeding South Bank and other boundaries
remove large weeds from wildflower meadow (if any)
pothole filling
orchard tidying (e.g. fruit bushes)
dead heading daffodils
removal of dumped turf
strimming of grass
woodchip management
etc.
Looking forward to seeing all who can make it,

Happy plotting, Stuart

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.

Community Sunday July 2019

This Sunday is our last opportunity to get set for our It’s Your Neighbourhood assessment visit at the beginning of August. Please come along if you can spare an hour or so to help.

It’s TAMS time again

Collections for The Allotment Market Stall (TAMS) start this Thursday.

TAMS is a wonderful project that sells our surplus produce to the public and so spreads the benefits of allotment working into the wider community while at the same time making a contribution back to our GFAA funds.

Please leave any (saleable) donations you can make into the special trays by the Bothy by noon, Thursdays.
