Growing Newsome Community allotment

Growing Newsome Community Allotment
We have a Community Allotment in Newsome for local food growers to share – please get in touch if you’d like to get involved. It’s ideal for anyone who wants a bit of support with growing their own food, or anyone who can offer advice to novice growers. By getting together, we’re all helping each other to grow our own food there. You’re welcome to come along as little or as often as you can. Refreshments provided.

We’re looking for new volunteers

From sitting down sowing some seeds in our potting shed to doing some digging or helping with DIY tasks, there’s something to suit everyone. It’s a great way to learn and to meet people, or just to spend some quiet time outdoors.

Late Winter and early Spring at our allotment

Can you spare a couple of hours? We have plenty to do at this time of year as we get ready for the growing season. Each Spring we sow thousands of vegetable seeds, flowers, herbs and salads to share with other growers in our community. We also harvest our over-wintering crops and get our vegetable garden ready for our new planting. And it is the season for tidying our sheds.

Any time you can give will really help our growing community. Help is also welcome with fetching more supplies, such as compost, which we needs lots of.

Join us on Sunday mornings from 10am to 12 noon. All welcome.
