UPDATE: After poor weather on March 1st, we did one lovely GYO session on March 15th, respecting social distancing, but due to the coronavirus lockdown I then suspended sessions. For what it’s worth, in general I think that allotments are relatively safe for a small group respecting distancing and aware of shared surfaces such as tool handles. But regulations disallow gatherings so we cannot resume.
For 9 years I have run ‘Grow Your Own’ sessions on my plot. We resume for the 10th season on Sunday 1st March 2020 at 10am.
The sessions are ideal for novices but equally if you want to come and tell us what to do, that’s great too. Get stuck in as we sow, nurture, harvest and eat. And frankly I want your practical help because illness is slowing him down these days.
We have Janet to thank for designing the society’s new logo which appears in the header above.
The design is officially a funky Trumpington pumpkin because it was inspired by the winning entry in the “Funky Vegetable” class at this year’s Cambridge Produce Show, which was grown at Foster Road allotments.
