What a great community harvest!
Thankyou to everyone who came up to the allotment. The pumpkins have almost all gone, the remaining few being on the Produce and Plant Stall. Though we look forward to a village trail of carved and lit pumpkins it is advised that there should be no trick or treating this year. Donations made will go towards the new poles needed to get the second poly tunnel up and running giving us more space for villagers and their families to try growing some of their own food year round. Our next crop will be Pak Choi and Winter Lettuce. There are to be two projects up at the allotment in the Spring:

(1) We are planning to have an artist in residence up at the Polytunnel and hope that artists and villagers of all ages who may like to try their hand at sketching/drawing some of the wildlife on the allotment may like to join him. More information and dates soon.

(2) We are also starting the preparation of the space for orchard and wildflower areas on the allotment. Look out for dates and information to join a team to do this.
