Seed swap event in allotment courtyard
June 20, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
We have just bought some seeds, tools and compost and planning to have an informal ‘seed swap’ event on Sunday 20th June from 11.30am. Come along to the allotment courtyard to meet fellow gardeners, discuss gardening tips, and take some seeds to plant – either in your allotment plot or in pots to take home and grow! This is an outdoor event but please maintain social distancing to reduce the risk of Covid-19.
The TRA has recently taken over management of the allotments from Hackney’s New Build team so we will be reallocating the unused plots as well as the allocating 6 of the new plots to those who have been on the waiting list for a long time.
In addition we will keep a few community plots to use for gardening events and to create a communal herb garden.
We have been awarded £600 of Hackney’s ‘Community Development fund’ to spend on gardening related equipment and events. These events are intended to build community around gardening and are open to anyone, not just residents with allotment plots.
