The Dig In volunteers spent the last two days in meetings.
Yesterday we met with Chris, a researcher who is collecting data for a postgraduate thesis on the role community gardens and allotments in society. Today we met with Lynn, who is helping us put together a bid for Lottery funding to support the project over the next two years.
"Meetings" always sound terribly dull and daunting, but over the two days we learned a lot of interesting things about one another, our personalities, talents, values, motivations, reasons for growing green stuff. It also gave us a chance to step back for a moment and examine our core values and what direction we want for the Dig In project, as well as to see just how much has been achieved in a relatively short time.
