POSTPONED UNTIL 24TH AUGUST - Grow your own campaign to reduce single-use plastic waste

WWAA Stall 2To do our bit to reduce plastic waste and food miles, the WWAA is trying to encourage the general public to grow at least a few vegetables of their own. We have booked a stall at the Locks Heath Centre on Saturday 10th August.  To demonstrate that growing your own is not restricted to the over 65’s we would like to ask for some help from some of you younger plot holders. If you could come along for an hour or so to talk about your own produce, your successes and failures, it would be much appreciated  There is no doubt that growing your own food is more tasty and the health benefits associated with having an allotment are well documented.  So, if you can help out on the day or want more information please call Martin on 07740268821 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

Sarisbury Green schoolchildren sweep the board with awards

Sarisbury Green school children plot holders 'swept the board of prizes and cups' at the Curdridge Annual Horticultural Show on Saturday 13th July, winning over 20 awards. Quite remarkable that a Sarisbury Green nine year old child beat all the opposition with his cut flower dahlias to the consternation of experienced growers!

Robin Green, Allotment Road Site Manager says: "I am very proud of the children producing such marvellous results and it reflects great credit on the WWAA for supporting them. Well done all".

The photos below reflect the awards which include three cups awarded to the schoolchildren for products grown on their plot 32A at Allotment Road.  The photos have been kindly forwarded by Maria Kimble.
