Allotments and Gardens
Tuesday 19 November, 2-4pm
things - practical fruit and vegetables or lovely flowers -
is a very special experience. It takes a lot of hard work
preparing the soil, planting seedlings, watering and caring
for them as they grow (and cursing the snails and aphids),
but there is so much satisfaction in eating fresh carrots
grown in your garden or allotment, or enjoying the beauty of
shrubs and flowers.
you allowed to help in the garden as a child, or did you
start growing things as an adult without any experience? How
did you learn to grow and care for plants? Were you lucky
enough to have an allotment or share in one where you could
grow leeks and onions in abundance, or just a tiny backyard
or balcony with glorious flowers?
along any pictures you have and stories of your experience
of growing plants!
