Syon Lane Harvest Festival

Last Sunday saw the harvest festival celebrations at Syon Lane Community Allotment. Marking the end of summer and the beginning of autumn, the festivities included apple bobbing, lantern making, dancing, drumming, singing, and a vegetarian feast made from veggies grown at the allotment (plus home-brewed wine!) and eaten communally round the fire. This was a happy and cheerful occasion, with smiles all round and a feeling of connection to the earth and to each other – despite the noise from the constant stream of planes heading into land at nearby Heathrow airport!

NB: Over the winter, the allotment will still be welcoming visitors, but the regular open days will be on the first Sunday of each month instead of weekly.

These dates are:

Sunday 2nd October 2011

Sunday 6th November 2011

Sunday 4th December 2011

Sunday 1st January 2012

Sunday 5th February 2012

The weekly open days will start up again in March 2012.

Visitors are welcome – come down and see what’s happening!
