Blame it on the sunshine!
It’s been the first properly sunny day of the year (and the first real frost) and the busiest Saturday yet for our allotment setup phase.
We’ve welcomed our lovely new volunteer Lucy from the University of Derby, set our gate posts and started putting in fence posts to create a safe and secure site. Then (fuelled by lots of cake) we got ballast down to level our shed base.
A couple of volunteers then visited the Kingsway trading estate down the road, where the lovely Halfords Kingsway and Smiths Kingsway staff let us have loads of their scrap card for mulching- great eco friendly use of materials, plus Crow Wood 1, Weeds 0 so far!
