Spring 2013 Events

COMMALLOT needs to have stalls during spring to make money for rent, seeds and sundries so that we can continue to be ‘no cost’ to volunteers. The events below should be good fun so do please help in any way you can.

Saturday 16th March Bristol’s annual SEED SWAP

12pm till 4pm The Seed Swap will be at Feed Bristol with Sims Hill Shared Harvest for The Big Dig. Confused? So was I. The big dig is a nationwide campaign to encourage people to visit their local growing projects. www.thebigdig.org.uk Sims Hill CSA produces fresh local vegetable shares to subscribers, have a look at their website.http://simshillsharedharvest.wordpress.com

The Commallot stall will have plants to sell but it will mostly be letting people know that we exist and encouraging them to visit or better still volunteer. Must remember to take our own table and chairs.

Saturday 20th April The 20th Anarchist Book Fair 11am till 6pm Our stall will sell any gardening, food, cooking books and magazines you can donate so have a good clear out, plus plants again and anything else loosely related to gardening or books you can think of. The gates are open at 10am for setting up. Table provided.   www.bristolanarchistbookfair.org

Sunday 9th June Get Growing Trail  Commallot will be open  11am till 3pm smiling in the glorious sunshine as a magnet for interested visitors and new volunteers. We will sell plants, cakes and tea.

We could do more… lets see how the first three events go.

Big Green Week 15th -23rd June and Festival of Nature on 15th and 16th clash with Easton Arts Trail on 15th/16th
