I am doing the Good Food Advice Stall for Bradford Community Environment Project’s Gardening for Health programme (my work) on Thurs 26 March, 11am – 1pm. The stall is in Oastler Market, Bradford City Centre. I did have a helper coming who would have been able to sell WYOG left-over seed spuds from Potato Day, but she is no longer available. Can anyone help out? It’s not too onerous a task, and is usually quite jolly (I do it once a month – though we don’t usually sell potatoes!). All you need to do is be there, I will bring the potatoes etc. If you can help, contact me at my work – firstname.lastname@example.org, tel 01274 223236.
We have a few seed potatoes left over and available for sale – Setanta (late main, organic) and Duke of York (1st early, not organic). Contact Jane on email@example.com if you want any. If there are any left by the end of March, she’ll have them with her on the Bradford Community Environment Project session at the Good Food Advice Stall in the entrance to Oastler Market, Bradford on Thursday 26 March from 11am to 1pm.
The whole grain cafe will be running again, with home made soup and breads, and lots of home made cakes. As we often run out of cakes if anyone would like to make one please let me know, and volunteers are always welcome to make tea and cut up cakes.
Please join us for the WYOG AGM, at Caroline Social Club, Saltaire, 12.00 – 3.00, on Saturday 15th of November 2014. This is a great chance to meet up without having a million and one things to do, such as at Potato Day and the Show. Come along and meet other members and find out a bit more about what we do.
The meeting will consist of:
12.15 – 1.30 AGM 1.30 – 2.00 lunch 2.00 to 3.00 Terry’s ten top tips for tasty tomatoes
Tomato expert Terry Marshall will be giving the talk he gave at the Show, so that all the volunteers who missed it get the chance to hear how to grow tasty tomatoes.
Horticulturalist and hot beds expert Jack First will be running courses on creating hot beds again later this year. To promote the courses he has made a short video presentation, giving a brief introduction to hot beds and also some of the amazing results produced from using this wonderful horticultural technique. In the video, which was filmed on 30th May Jack explains what a hot bed is and shows some of the superb organic produce that is harvested at this early time of year.
The annual WYOG post festive meal will be on Friday 31st January, 2014, at The Terrace Cafe Bar and Bistro, Saltaire, offering the finest French cuisine in West Yorkshire.
Our annual meal is a great chance to kick back, relax in good company, review the previous year and look forward to the next. All welcome, the more the merrier. Please let Peter Taylor know if you would like to come.
The Terrace website has a full range of menus, including vegetarian options on the specials menu. If you want to pre-order please let Peter know what you would like – that would be a great help.
