I popped down to the allotment today for the first time, and it is absolutely brilliant. The raised beds look awesome and the team are so enthusiastic and welcoming. I genuinely wish that I wasn’t working on a Thursday so I could get involved (although I am now going to pop down whenever I can).
It was great to see all the prep work taking place with the mulching, poo spreading etc and I left whilst Graham waged war against caterpillars on the cabbages.
I would encourage anyone to go and lend a hand, it is a great way to spend a few hours and you are guaranteed to learn something.
