Watering of Site Experiment

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Committee member Alec McDonald has tested a small generator, submersible pump and hose to supply water from the main tanks to a number of potholder’s water tanks and plots. This proved very successful and it is proposed that we offer this facility to any member interested at a charge of £5 annum to cover the cost of petrol. This facility will only be provided at times of extended good weather and at the beginning of the year prior to planting when the main tanks are being filled. A number of potholders have already paid their £5 and anyone else interested should let the Committee know.

DeWalden & Thomson & Morgan Donations

Grateful thanks to DeWaldens for a donation of seeds and other growing items including 5 bags of compost and for arranging a donation from Thomson and Morgan for seeds to the value of £60 – a combined total of nearly £100.
These will be used on visits to the site by various children’s groups over the coming year and at Barassie Primary Empty Classroom Day and Summer Fayre. We will also donate some seeds and bags of compost to Symington Nursery and Community Learning and Development who have recently acquired a plot on the site.
