Progress Report

Good morning all! It’s not even a day for hiding in the polytunnel, its like winter out there! Out the window I can see my wind monitors (aka kniphofia flowers) being batted about the place. Let’s hope it doesn’t last

Well, what a year we’ve had so far. Since allocation day in February, the site has been transformed into a little community. I’m pleased to say that this extends to regular visitors too, who love to wander round and see the transformations taking place as individual plots become thriving food producing spaces. That public interaction is important to the project, as the work of Three Towns Growers doesn’t stop at 49 allotment plots. We’ve committed to providing all members of the community having the opportunity to benefit from our project.

I’m currently in discussions with the committee about our strategy for the coming year, and news of that will follow shortly. We are looking to provide a series of activities and workshops in the community hub, that will provide opportunities for community members to meet people and maybe learn something new. The main focus will of course be gardening, but now and again we will do something a bit different. The first of these will be seen this month, with a square foot gardening workshop. Watch this space for dates!

Happy Gardening 🙂
