Monday 12th April
What a day the shops and pubs are open, you can get a hair cut and there was snow on the ground this morning ! (well ive seen pictures of snow it was gone before i looked outside) So what is a girl to do on such an auspicious day? A bit of pottering around the plot of course. Anne wasn't able to join me today so i was left to my own devices. Having looked at the weather forecast i decided to go to the plot in the afternoon. The sun was shining by lunch time as i set about weeding the flower bed and around the no dig bed attracting the attention of the friendly robin.
a bucket of weeds, a couple of conversations with the neighbours, and a few seedlings potted on and 4 hours had passed time runs differently on the plot i'm sure and theres no better place to be
Ps i also eat one of the first crops we've grown from seed a beautiful crunchy radish ;)
Greening Stoke is a project run in partnership between Festival Stoke and Letting in the Light. We are based in Stoke-on-Trent.
We are started this adventure in January 2021 in the middle of a national lockdown. Gradually, as things begin to open up, close down and then open up again, Rachel and Anne abided by all the Covid-19 Government guidance, worked in a socially distanced way, to prepare and maintain Plot 33 so that they were eventually able to invite the community to work with them.
