Allotment Gardening

Allotment Gardening
Leader: Maggie Gilvray - see Group Leaders Contact Details.
Timing: Wednesday and/or Friday early afternoon.
Location: Duddingston Glebe.
Buses: 42.
Activity: We are a practical gardening group growing our own produce to share on a lovely south facing plot overlooking Duddingston Loch. You don’t need to be an experienced gardener as group members share their knowledge but you do need to be mobile with some basic level of fitness to join in activities. There is no disabled access but there is free parking, toilets and a café close by.
The Allotment group are looking for handipersons who could help construct some raised beds so that members less able to dig and bend can participate more easily.
Contact Maggie Gilvray at clarion@edinburghu3a.org.uk.
This group has a surplus of very lively Tiger Worms (for making compost). If you want some, please contact Richard Desoldenhoff at rdesoldenhoff@hotmail.com. The worms are at Duddingston, but if you live outside Edinburgh, they can be posted.
