When we were consulting on what people wanted to see at Dorset Road Allotments, members frequently asked for opportunities to come together as a community to do something to benefit the site as well as get to know each other. Our first community day was in February when we planted new hedging and seed bombed the wildlife garden. Seedy Sunday on 24th March is our second community day.
Come along to the Clubhouse to swap any spare seeds or plants with your fellow plotholders, help sow seeds to sell at the open day and learn from experts. You can also have a cup of tea or coffee with your fellow allotmenteers.
The shop will also be open so that you can stock up on any gardening equipment or buy some seeds at a discounted price.
Yes, it’s that time of year again – the Dorset Road Allotment’s Annual Open Day. Regular visitors will be pleased to know that as usual we will have our wonderful homemade cakes available (with a cup of tea), there will be a barbeque and plenty of plants for sale as well as other food and craft stalls. There will be bee demonstrations and dog agility displays.
Children will be able to play on the bouncy castle and there will be a range of other stalls and activities to keep them entertained including the free Treasure Hunt.
