Community Sunday June 2020

Stuart

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

New attractions

These were spotted today on site:

Hats off for the Stone Painters: Move over Banksy

Fire!

I want to say a big thank you to all the plotters who turned out to help with the bonfire today. Thanks to the big turnout we were able to make a huge clearance of rubbish in record time.

Beginnings
Getting hotter!
Phew!
Seemingly endless!

A big thank you to all concerned.

18 Plus Community Sunday

It was wonderful to see such a good turnout for our first Community Sunday of the year. Thanks go to all who found the time to come along and help with pruning, primary plot digging and lots more.

Woman at work!

Upcoming Events

COMMUNITY SUNDAY
Just a reminder that this Sunday 15th March is the third Sunday in the month and that means it’s Community Sunday at the allotment site. Hopefully as many as possible will be able to come along and help for just an hour or so with various community activities around the site. Meet around 11am. As usual we will stop for coffee and cake at 12.30.

BONFIRE
We plan to have our annual bonfire on Thursday 19th March starting at 10am. If you are free please come along to help feed the bonfire with the vast quantity of plot waste to be burned.

This is your last chance this season to get rid of any scrap wood or raspberry canes, tree prunings etc. – no carpets or plastics.

Introducing Rory Raitt

We met Rory on his first visit on site today.

Rory is a professional photographer here in Aberdeen and is interested in using Garthdee Field as the focus for a Photo Essay with the intention of celebrating allotments as important green spaces.

I am sure all plotters will give Rory a warm Garthdee welcome when he is next on site. But don’t pester him too much for portraits of your prize parsnips!
