Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to ask if anyone will be around on the 13th for about an hour from 12.30pm? Mick from the park would like one (or more) of us to be around to speak with the committee. We just need to talk about the benefits of the space and what it means to the community. It will be very informal and personable - not scary. (Actions like this help councils and other governing bodies to see the wonderful benefits of community gardening, and hopefully encourage their growth!) Unfortunately I have too much on at work, so I won't be able to take the day off. Let me know if anyone is free, and I can let Mick know.

Aside from that, I am looking forward to the get together on the 16th. Who else is able to make it?

Thanks,

Jenna

Hello all! 

Apologies for the complete non-response on my part, I'm in Australia at the moment. Unfortunately it means I can't come along this weekend though I would love to, though I can definitely come along on the 16th of April to lend a hand - I fly back into to the country on the 11th.

And if there is a spare plot going then I would love to take care of it! - Kim

PS Will check whether I am in Portugal on Wednesday 13th April unfortunately. Hope someone else can make it... 

Ian, will you be there? And also do you want to continue with your mini-plot this year. Best, Maggie

That's great, Jenna. I think one of the up for grabs spaces is the one I made for Louisa then took over from her when she couldn't keep it up. I have put my name on it. It looks as if there is still one up for grabs. If you want to come along at 2.00 on Sunday, Kim, I will show you where it is. Maggie

Hi guys,

Mick from the park has offered to provide woodchip the week of the Bid Dig so we can tidy up the paths too.

He has also confirmed that there is a committee walk on Wednesday 13th April. He asked if anyone would be available from 12.30pm to speak with the committee about how we use the space and it benefits the community.

It would really help if someone is available, and would be nice for us to be able to support the park team any way we can.

If anyone is free and interested let me know and I can contact Mick on your behalf or pass on contact details.

Also, i have updated the word document to reflect the additional comments. Its not an exact replica - just something visual to show available spaces.

Unfortunately I can't make it this weekend, either Saturday or Sunday, but hopefully the weather will hold out :)

Jenna

Dear Maggie,

I would like to keep my plot as well, please. I have bought several types of seeds,which I am hoping to sow indoors soon (where required), then in the allotment when they are ready to sow outdoors. I have extra seeds, if anyone wants to use them?

Jenna - my plot is the one without a name on your map, next to Fausto.

I can come along on Saturday afternoon to start to dig the plots, so see you then. I can probably come on April 16th as well.

All the best, Julienne

I am planning to make a start on Sunday March 20th at 2.00. I think Kate is usually there at that time and maybe others would like to come along and we can make it a bit of a 'Garden Together'. What do you think?  Maggie

1. I can come on 16th. Thought I wasn't back but find I am! A bag of wood chip/shreddings to fix up the path would be useful as well as the (welcome) manure. Park are usually amenable to supplying...

2. Map - great idea. Being a bit of an idiot in these matters I couldn't edit it. I know Eve and Jacob are active on the other part of Nilufer's plot. Leo, a new member, has taken over the other half of my rectangular plot, so they could go on map. I also have the plot Phil and I made for Louisa (who then left) last year. It is right by the path on the way to the tennis courts and at present covered with weed-proof fabric. 

Hope others will post soon and stake their claims and tell us about the other spaces that seem to be available. I think a new member Kim may be waiting for a plot if one is free. Glad that Kate can have her second plot...

Hi everyone, sorry for the lack of response Maggie.

I have just registered our space for the Big Dig 2016 - which is on 16th April this year. We have a big Tunny bag of manure organised for the Big Did event that we can use to refill our plots. It is also a great opportunity for us to get together for the first time since Autumn. We can clear up the site a little, improve our soil, clear our the compost bins and depending on the weather we can start sowing seeds - broad beans, beetroot, carrots, leeks, chitted potatoes, onions, lettuce, kohl rabi. Hopefully by the 16th there will be no further frosts and we can have a good start to the season.

Can everyone please confirm if they can attend on 16/04/16 and we can organise some sandwiches and tea/coffee with the cafe. Its really important we keep the area looking nice and tidy.

Attached below is a brief site map, and names of those who have a plot. Can you confirm if this is correct, or if any changes need to be made. Its hard to keep track of who still wants to participate this year. Kate - I have added your name to the plot next to your current one. 

Thanks, Jenna
