Growing Newsome and Stirley Farm 2015 – a year in pictures

These pictures celebrate our past year of growing and sharing food together at the Growing Newsome community allotment, at Stirley Farm, and in lots of other places across our community. This year the Growing Newsome elves were finalists in the National Lottery Awards – a huge achievement for a small local group – and Stirley Farm appeared on BBC Countryfile. We have much to celebrate. Thank you to everyone who has stuck with us since the beginning, to everyone who has participated along the way, and those of you who may be our food growers of the future. Enjoy.

Oh, and we can’t look back on 2015 without saying farewell and thank you to our Toby. He even did the washing up before leaving :’-(

Growing Newsome and Stirley Farm 2013 – a year in pictures

These pictures celebrate our past year of growing and sharing food together in Newsome – at our community allotment, at Stirley Farm and in lots of other places across our community. Following our wet, wet, very wet 2012, we had a chilly start to 2013, with our allotment still deep in snow at the end of March. We thought that we’d never get going this year, but as per usual there was no stopping our hardy gardeners.

2013 was also a year of departures, with Rob, Claire and young Holly moving to Canada, and Lisa moving over to Leeds with Neil. We’ve had one or two arrivals as well though, and our community continues to grow…

Here is some of the produce from Ruth’s garden (and front porch) that she brought along to show visitors to our stall at Berry Brow Carnival. She labelled her box ‘Fresh today from a non-gardener’s garden’. Do you have something growing in your garden that you’re proud of? Please send us your photographs so that we can share them on this web site and in our leaflets and newsletters. Like Ruth, you could help to inspire other people in Newsome to get growing…

 

Please email your photos to: sims31@btinternet.com

Or contact us if you have printed photographs that you’d like to share.
