Hands On Gardening Group
We are a group of 8 lead by the Convener and one other person who hold a joint tenancy with the Nottingham City Council. The locked site is called Canal-side and we occupy Plot Nos 205 and 206. The rent is £45 p.a. approx and will rise annually. There is a small parking space down a grassy bridle road and no laid on water supply.
The soil is heavy clay. The plot is open and sheltered with raised beds and narrow paths. Wild flowers grow round the perimeter and we use only organic methods. Each of us have at least two raised beds to grow our own vegetables. These measure 4 ft wide and vary in length up to 15 ft.
We now have at least two vacancies for 1 or 2 raised beds each and would welcome new members into our social group. It is vital that new members have e-mail, are able-bodied and have at least one morning per week to spare. Gardening expertise is not essential. Friendly advice is always at hand on request.
Please contact us if you would like to join this group, and we will take you for a visit before you decide definitely.
