Big Dig Open Day at Syon Lane Community Allotment

Despite the pouring rain putting off a few visitors and volunteers, the Syon Lane Community Allotment Big Dig Open Day turned out to be a fun and productive afternoon. You can see some of the things we got up to (including making hundreds of seed-balls, filling up the greenhouse with lots of newly-planted seeds in pots, and getting our bathtub wormery up and running!) in the photos above.

We were also visited by a photographer from the local paper, and you can see some of his photos here.

Thanks to everyone who came down and made it such an enjoyable day!

Spring at Syon Lane Community Allotment

Spring has definitely arrived at Syon Lane, as you can see from the photos above (which were taken yesterday afternoon). Preparations are well underway for the Big Dig Spring Open Day, which is happening at the community allotment on Saturday 17th March from midday until 6pm.

Come along and get involved in sowing and planting out in the forest garden and market garden areas, learn how to make seed balls and discover how to construct a wormery – as well as lots of other useful garden activities and workshops. And once you’ve built up an appetite, there will be free vegan food and hot and cold drinks on offer all day too.

All are welcome!
