Invitation to the Taster Day Sun 18/12 10-14

Southend in Transition Community Allotment
(entrance to allotments off Hamstel Road – Garon’s end – opposite fish and chips Plaice to Be)

Where you can learn how to grow food, look after your garden, take fresh produce home, meet new people over a shared meal and exchange ideas on how to help the community thrive.

Taster Days

Sun 18/12 10-14
A session to do more of clearing out beds and preparing them for winter season. Lots of warm tea and coffee:) and a mince pie here and there. Admiring Jim’s grand achievement in digging over the Family Plot. Covering up the new plot.
If the weather is particularly bad in the morning and forecast won’t give us much hope we will instead convene in Railway Hotel for a lunch at 12:00. Please take my number down and call up or text on the day if in doubt where we decide to go.

Please share.
