Garthdee Field on High

If you have visited your allotment recently you may have been greeted by scenes like this –

All very depressing

A wee warning, if needed, that nets need to be removed from fruit cages and other vulnerable structures before winter comes, or else snow cleared from them before it turns to ice.

But this too will pass and here is a wee reminder of just how wonderful Garthdee Field looks at its best. The video was shot in mid July – as I recall. Best viewed in full screen mode.

Thanks go to Alison (Plot 80) for arranging for this aerial video to be made and to her friend, Alan Rae who programmed and flew the drone.

IYN Award 2022

Phil (Plot 57) attended an It’s Your Neighbourhood Celebration hosted by Aberdeen City Council this week and was presented with our top ranking, “Outstanding with Distinction” Award Certificate for our 2022 entry.

It was smashing to see us maintain our ranking for another year and thanks go to all of the plotters, volunteers and friends of Garthdee Field Allotments whose efforts around the site and on plots made it possible.

Our community projects are always recognised as our strength on these occasions and we very much hope our Fresh Food for Frugal Families project will win funding in the current Scottish Government’s Just Transition Scheme. If you haven’t voted for us here’s the link and remember, everyone in the household can vote! Voting closes tomorrow at noon – so please vote now!

Free Greenhouse Available

GFAA has been donated this smart and tidy six by six foot greenhouse. The greenhouse is complete with all its glass, but will need to be secured to a suitable base.

Plotters are invited to email expressions of interest to by 5.00pm on Friday December 9th 2022. In the event of more than one plotter being interested a winning name will be drawn from a hat.

A donation to GFAA funds from the winning plotter will be much appreciated.

Our volunteer squad may be able to help with installation if required, but the plotter will need to supply any materials needed for the base.

UPDATE: The greenhouse has found a new home.

What a glorious day!

Our volunteers enjoyed just a glorious day this Tuesday. Thanks go to all who managed along and apologies go to those who we did not get into the photos. Photo credits go to volunteers Jordi and Jack.

These are the pics of the day!
