August family sessions

Thank you!

A big THANK YOU to all who attended our Strawberry Cream Tea event on July 7th.

There was a slight clash with the England football team playing in the semi-finals of the world cup, but thankfully a lot of visitors still came to our event.  This meant that the Dig In volunteers didn't have to eat lots of scones, jam & clotted cream!
All of the volunteers helping out really enjoyed your company and the games on the lawn seemed to go down well with the young/young-at-heart visitors.

The grapes are ripening ... see you at our Harvest event for a taste?

Wednesday session

A lovely time had by all at Wednesday's session.  There was a lot of laughing going on and a little bit of work!!!

The flowers in and around the sensory beds are looking fabulous at the moment!

In fact, the whole site is looking really good.

Willow Obelisks

It was our willow obelisk workshop last Saturday.
Tracy and Kathy showed us how to construct a garden obelisk from willow.

All participants made fine looking obelisks to take away with them, if you'd have bought them in the shops they would have been rather expensive!

They will look rather fine with sweet peas or runner beans growing up them or just as a feature in their own right.

Thanks to Tracy & Kathy for their willow expertise & to Kathy for her rhubarb surprise!

Dig In needs YOU!!!!

Your Community Allotment needs YOU!
Dig In is a friendly, peaceful oasis in Stapleford, where you can spend a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life!
To help Dig In to continue and grow, we need people from all walks of life.
You don't have to be a knowledgeable gardener to come along although you may pick up a few tips! We need people who enjoy or like the idea of all aspects of gardening; may also enjoy just being outside; woodwork; design; committee work; liaising with people; tea-making (very important) and many more skills!
We are open Wednesdays and Saturdays 10.00am-12.00 midday so if your interest has been piqued, why not come and visit us for a no-obligation tour around the site? If you time it right, you may also get a cup of tea!
There is no membership or cost to join Dig In just wear suitable clothes and footwear. All tools are supplied by us.
