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 everybody and welcome to Barbara, who has taken the fourth plot in the playground area. (Marianne didn't get back to me and Barbara was next on the list...)

We have no more plots but I think there is no-one left on the waiting list. If that's not right - if someone is on the waiting list - please post and remind me. There's been a lot of 'traffic' and it gets hard to keep track.  Maggie

Hi Sally. I've been giving it some thought. Various possibilities, none of them ideal... Do you happen to be in the vicinity of the Park on Sunday? I am playing tennis 11.00 to 12.00. We could meet before or after and run through the options... Maggie

I have randomly acquired a water butt which I don't have any use for but thought it might be handy for the new beds next to the Lido? (if we are allowed of course!) It would probably need to be filled with the hose from the lido once but then hopefully we could just use rainwater to keep topping it up?  Let me know and I'd be happy to transport it to the park and get it set up.

Hi Maggie,
Hope you are well? I was just wondering if you had had any joy about accessing the hose in the lido for the new beds?
Thanks, Sally x

Hi, I would love to learn more about growing plants with my children, and wanted to know as well if it would be possible to use a little plot? It is such a great idea. Happy to help as well in any way I could! Thanks a lot. Barbara.

I so enjoyed helping to make the new raised beds and look forward to being a garden buddy in the near future.

Blog post about the allotment extension for refugee plot holders coming soon!

Hi Maggie. I have put some mint I dug up from my raised bed by the wooden fence at the back of the allotment in case you want it for the new bed outside the cafe. Thanks!

Thanks to all who have volunteered be a garden buddy to a refugee allotment holder. You are collectively: Mark, Helen and Sally among our plot-holders; Helene who writes the Transition blog; and two other 'plotless friends' - Sarah and Elisabeth - who have been inspired by the project to offer to be buddies and also know enough about growing veggies to fit the bill. I

t would be great if the six of you could text your mobile numbers to me on 07986 599848. I will then pass on one number to each new potholder and also text you to tell you whom I am putting you in touch with. Thanks! Maggie

Hi Maggie,

I'd be happy to help as a garden buddy.

I'll also try to measure up this coming Sunday (weather permitting) so that i can start drawing up a plan of all of the beds.

Another development ...

The two slightly raised beds close to the pitch are now going to be communal beds (following discussions with the Park Management). The risk of new people taking them on and their produce being trampled on or stolen was felt to be too high in that particular location. We can plant them with herbs and flowers, some of which we can bring over from the beds in the children's playground area, and anything else you think would be good. Everything that grows will be for everyone to share. 

The other seven beds are for the refugees, as planned. I'm waiting to hear from Sarah at Salusbury World when the first of the refugees will be coming along to be introduced. Maggie
