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

Hello 

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

Thanks 

Lily Bunker

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.

Maggie

Hi All, we are Patrizio and Alison, we have moved to Queen's Park 9 years ago and both are really keen gardeners. Last April 2017 we asked to be added to the waiting list for a mini plot in the park by emailing Maggie so we are renewing our interest through the website as well just in case.
I'm also aware that very few current assignees cultivate during the autumn / sow late summer so sharing a plot with someone else would also work as a starter.
Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!

Pat and Alison

Hi all! 

Hope this finds you really well. My partner and I are moving into the area this summer, and would very much like to be added to the waiting list for a mini-plot. We're avid gardeners (though still beginners!) and would love to be part of your community if there is space in the months to come. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

Best,
Manori

Anyone want to be famous? Richard, the Park Manager, passed this on to me.

 

Good afternoon to you all,

 

Channel 5, as you can see from the email below, are looking for gardeners for a new competition.

 

If you are interested please reply direct to them using the link below.

Gardening Competition for Channel 5

 

TV production company Crackit is looking for pairs of brilliant, enthusiastic, amateur gardeners with serious green-fingered talent to take part in a brand-new gardening competition for Channel 5.

If you’re up for an exciting challenge or would like to nominate two people who would be, we want to hear from you!

 

The pairs:

 

We’re searching for pairs of gifted gardeners from across the UK who are passionate about all things horticultural – and are willing to showcase their amazing gardening skills.

 

Both of you must have already created at least one fantastic garden. It could be your own back garden, a friend or relative’s plot, or a community space – as long as you are not a professional gardener.

 

You should have a genuine relationship with one another – whether that’s because you are partners, siblings, friends, colleagues or otherwise.

 

Both of you must be available to film on the weekends between 25th and 26th August and the 29th and 30th September.

 

How to apply:

 

If you think you fit the bill (or know someone who does) please get in touch via the email address below – ideally with good quality photos of your garden!

Hi Maggie, thank you for your answer. If you could add me on the waiting list that'd be great ! :) thank you.  if you organise any gathering i'd be happy to join as well.

Hi Marie,

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 (currently short) 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-ordiante a watering rota! 

If you would like to be put on the waiting list for your own mini-plot please post your request here.

If you would just like to join in with 'garden togethers' as and when as a volunteer, you can post that here as well and then watch this space for notice of gatherings. You would be very welcome!
