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.

I planning to stop co-ordinating at the end of the year. I have done it for a long time and it's time for someone else to have a go. The tasks could be split between two or three people, or one person could take over from me. 

If you're willing to take on the role, or part of the role, please post here or not he WhatsApp. Maggie

Hi everyone. It's time to ask you if you want to continue with your plot next year. 

Because we have a long waiting list, I have chatted to a few people and we think it right to reallocate the plots of people who have done very little this summer. Mark and Nilufer, I hope it's OK to reallocate your plots, so that we can get some people off the waiting list and give them a chance. Look forward to your replies. Maggie

Are you on the waiting list? Please remind me if you are on the list but your name isn't below. (The comment board is not very user friendly!) Please also tell me which date I confirmed your request for a plot. 

I have found Marie and Tom, Manori, Patrizio and Alison, Lily and Sarah as people currently on the list. Can each of you confirm whether you want to stay on the list?

We have no vacant plots at present - this is just to make sure I have an accurate list. Thanks, Maggie

Hi Sarah, 

Usually I put up a comment in the early spring to see who wants to continue and who not, and which people on the waiting list are still interested, as some people move on or find another place in the meantime. Because the list is quite long and I am stopping coordinating at the end of the year, I am doing now instead. Another message to follow...

Hi Maggie and QPA group!

I hope this finds you well

I registered for this group last summer and requested to be added to the waitlist for an allotment space (on 17 July 2017, now on page 15), but I think that message may have been missed as I didn't receive a reply.

I live in the area already but am moving closer to the park next month. I have been growing vegetables on my balcony this summer but our new place won't have any outdoor space so I would really love to have the opportunity to be able to continue at QPA if/when a space opens up!

If you could please add me to the list and let me know when this has been received it would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the group, Lily. We will be thinking about re-allocations in early spring 2019, so this is just to acknowledge your message and confirm that you are on the waiting list. Currently there are five people ahead of you. All best, Maggie

I live in Queens park and would like to be added to the waiting list for the allotment space.

Meanwhile, the waiting list has built up over the year and it may be that by the spring some people will have moved on or found another space to garden in.

I will put a post here in January to find out who is still actively 'waiting' and then see what we can do. We are rather oversubscribed at the moment so it might be worth looking at some of the other Transition food growing projects and see if anything suits your needs. I know some of them have space for people to start gardening right away. Maggie

Hi Patrizio and Alison!I I don't think you found your way to this part of the website before - the QPA group, so I could register your interest until now.

Changeover time as far as the plots are concerned is in February or March. Some people continue on and others give up their plots for various reasons and we then allocate people from the waiting list. A trawl through the comment board is the best way of getting a sense of how it operates. We also have a WhatsApp, which we are currently using to co-ordinate a watering rota. It has been, and still is, a dry summer!

If you would just like to join in with 'garden togethers' while waiting, then watch this space for notice of gatherings. The next thing is a shared potato harvest this coming Thursday evening at 6.30. and you would be very welcome.
