RHS Greening Grey Britain

The RHS has launched a new funding and support initiative called, “Greening Grey Britain with Communities in 2019”. They are looking for new projects that will bring seasoned community gardeners together with young green-fingered recruits. To the right projects, they are offering expert hands-on support and up to £500 worth of plants and materials.

New beginnings full of promise

In their own words, they say, “Imagine forgotten littered corners reborn as vibrant wildflower meadows, car parks lined with trees to slow down storm water or disused areas becoming productive gardens, with food to share with the community”.

Projects have to fit with one or more of three themes.

  • Grow for people
  • Grow for the planet
  • Grow for wildlife

Thinking of our own site, several areas spring to mind as being ripe for development. Is anyone itching to take up the challenge of building a bid or have ideas for possible projects?

More information is available on the RHS website.

Shed Break-ins

Last night there has been a series of break-ins at GFAA sheds, and a large number have had padlocks sheared with bolt cutters.

Could you please:

1 check the security of your shed as soon as practicable, and where this has been compromised, reinstate security promptly

2 where things have been stolen, itemise these and inform the police yourself. This is the most effective way in which we can benefit from increased patrols near the site.

Thanks and Best Regards

Michael Hart
Secretary – GFAA

It’s raining now….

River Dee Trust Tree Planting Event

Calum Hislop from the River Dee Trust has been in contact to flag up this up-coming community opportunity.

The River Dee Trust as part of its river bank improvements is planning a significant tree planting event on the 27th April on the land behind Sainsburys.

I am getting in touch to ask if you or any of your membership would like to get involved.

The event is being organised as a community event with support from the River Dee Trust. The Scottish Woodland Trust, and the AWPR fund. Sainsburys are also offering to support the event with hot drinks and snacks.

I will forward promotional material as it is produced but thought it a good idea to flag the event up to in advance.
