Queens Park Allotment (active group)

Most of the plot is now divided into mini-plots, with individuals each taking responsibility for a numbered mini-plot. 'Garden together' events, where as many members as possible come along are posted on the website regularly. Large tools are provided but please bring your own small trowel, fork and gloves. If you are interested in having a mini-plot, please register on the website and post a comment with your enquiry.

Hi Leo,

In fact you can have a plot all on your own, which Jenner has confirmed is free. It is the one I gave up at the end of last year. Kate, I think it's right to give this plot to the new people - sure you will agree. But maybe there is more space available? You need Jenner to advise you on who is continuing and who not and whether there are any empty plots...

Leo, I'll describe where the plot is that you are getting. If you look towards the growing spaces from the golf course, there are two rectangular beds. One of them has wire netting down the middle (for peas). The empty plot is the one on the golf course side of the wire netting? Does that make sense?

Hi All,

yes, it was a really good Transition Town gathering on Wed with Rob at the library.

If there are no extra plots available for more people to join, I am  quite happy to share my plot with you and   your daughter, Leo.

All best,

Hi Maggie, welcome back. I would love some more space but hope I'm not being greedy. I know eve and Jacob want to keep their plot too. Thanks,

Hi all, great session the other night with Rob. I would love to get more involved with the allotment. My daughter and I loved helping to build the spiral in the middle ages ago and we would both love to plant potatoes or peas...is there any room for two keen amateurs? leo

Hi Everyone,

I have covered Louisa's ex-plot with weed surpassing fabric now, to save it from disappearing back into the grass. I don't really need my old plot back, though I will work it rather than see it go to waste if no-one else wants it. But maybe one of you would like a bit more space? Or knows someone who would like the plot? It's a nice plot - the one with the wire netting down the middle which is useful for growing peas.  Any thoughts? Any takers?  Best Maggie

Dear All,

There is "URBAN FEAST" at the Granville Plus Centre, NW6 5RA on 29th January Friday this month.

There will be Food tasting, planting activities, free community dinner, story telling. Diabetes risk assessment and BMI testing  etc. 

It would be great to promote and inform the people of allotment pleasures and importance of allotments in communities. Would anyone like to come and talk to people about allotments, I can help make a leaflet and give out on the day, as I will be helping with Diabetes BMI tests. Pls let me know anyone interested..Nilufer

Thanks for the welcome back. I'd be happy to have my old plot back, as Jenner suggested, and also to take on Louisa's little ex-plot - the one almost opposite the tennis hut that Phil and I make for her last year - if no-one else has his or her eye on it.

I still have a bit of house-clearing and other stuff to do, so would be grateful if you could take care of the Big Dig, Jenner, and organise one or two 'garden togethers' before you go off to Oz in August. It sounds as though Julienne would probably give you a hand if you need one. I'll think about taking back the leadership in autumn but I'd really rather someone else did it, as I've had a long stint already. Anyone interested?  I'm happy to been hand to support/advise. All best, Maggie

Dear Maggie,

I am pleased that you feel you have time to be involved again - great news.

Shall we try to arrange a Big Dig in March again, to begin to prepare our plots for the new season? And I would be interested to hear what people are thinking about planting in their mini-plots this year?

All the best,


Comment by Nilufer on January 8, 2016 at 13:29

Hi Maggie, my condolences for you mum. 

I am glad you are coming back. Not sure who is arranging the plots now!! Today I saw a mobile oven outside the Coffee Shop. Apparently they are building one for the summer to make fresh Pizza. Maybe we can use the oven too sometimes.hoorrreyyyy
