Seedling Swap next Saturday (8th May)

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Come along to Underley Road allotments on Saturday 8th May for a seedling swap organised by the Grow-Your-Own helpline group. A great way to get more plants for your garden or allotment, bring along your spare seedlings and swap them or give a donation and have a look around the community orchard while you’re there. The swap will take place from 10-3 and there will be tea and cakes available.

Directions: Heading north out of Kendal on Windermere Road, turn right onto Garth Brow, 1st right onto Hallgarth Circle then 1st right onto a little crescent road by a green. Halfway around the crescent there is a lane between houses, the allotments will be signposted from here.

Food & Agri meeting

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

The Food and Agriculture sub-group had its quarterly meeting last Saturday in Rydal. 20 people turned out for a lovely, lively afternoon which started with a tour around Rydal Hall’s Community Garden – thanks to Ian for showing us around!

We headed down the hill to the Badger Bar for the meeting itself that included updates from The Red Shed growing project at QKS in Kendal, the Cumbria Forest Foods network, Kendal Grow-Your-Own group, Staveley’s Apples for All, and an allotments update, plus feedback from the March 3rd SLACC TT launch. There’s lots of exciting projects on the go with this sub-group!

If you’d like to join the Food mailing list or find out more about any of the above projects please email or watch this space for details of the next meeting.

Thanks to everyone who car-shared and cycled (we squeezed 6 bicycles on the train to Windermere)!
