Events for members

Every week

Wednesday 10am-1pm and Saturday 10am-1pm
Join our growers to work on a seasonal task – may include planting out seedlings, weeding, harvesting crops for storage, clearing and preparing polytunnels or field beds, putting straw to protect crops in winter, maintaining fences and other infrastructure – continuing throughout summer 2020.

Social events 2020
More dates to be added as they are arranged.

Saturday 4th April onwards
Big spring work task – onion planting
Come and help plant the main onion crop – a task suitable for all ages! The work will continue for as long as needed and anyone who is well and symptom free, and has not been advised to self-isolate, is welcome to come and join in – the work will be arranged so that social distancing measures can be maintained.

Due to COVID-19 we will not be providing any refreshments or arranging shared food during onion planting work sessions. You are encouraged to bring a flask with your own hot drinks, and are welcome to bring a packed lunch if you want to work both sides of lunchtime. We will be contacting members to let them know when the work can start (dependent on the ground being dry enough for the land to be prepared).

Saturday 11th July
Summer social – Canalside summer party
