So things have been crazily busy for the past month and we seem to have missed a few posts! We've run our first public drop in workshop since the pandemic started, a greening workshop at St Marks church (there's a post in the pipeline about this). Anne has set-up, invigilated and taken down an exhibition. We've collected a shed kindly donated by Allan and got it back to plot 33 ordered wood to make a few repairs to it before we put it up. Run banner making workshops and written 3 funding bids. Plus run our weekly Wonder Women session at the plot along with the day to day maintenance that takes place on an allotment weeding, watering, harvesting and planting and very occasionally we've just sat and had lunch caught our breath and marveled at how quick pumpkins grow.
so here are some photos for you to enjoy and we'll try and keep on top of the posts
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.
