26th June Taster Day Overview

IMG_20160626_143109

 

A beautiful day spent enjoying the sunshine and harvesting some of our produce.  The plot was buzzing with activity, with children watering every possible plant in sight and feeding them with coffee grouts.  A job much appreciated by the growing seeds and plants.

 

With the grass cut, hedges trimmed and seedlings planted where necessary, the energy was flowing as was the delightful conversation.  Due to the wonderful turn out of attendees many jobs were completed, including decorating our tools with SiT logos and bright adornments.

 

Of course no plot visit would be complete without some tasty food bought along by attendees and washed down with several cups of tea and coffee.  A fine end to all the hard work and a time to get to know each other a little more.  Blissful.

We look forward to seeing you at the next taster day on Sunday 10 July.
