Vegucational excellence

Selina, Elisha, Daniyal and Amaan from Riddlesden St. Mary’s CE Primary School in Keighley are helping to collect some of their vegetables from the school garden. There is no sign of any of their sweetcorn which won the best entry in the schools section this year at the Show – they’ve all been eaten!
Are there any other schools who have some photos of children gardening you’d like to put up here? If so please send them in.

Hot Bed Courses

Jack First (WYOG member and very experienced organic gardener) is planning to hold one or more 1 day practical courses on the process and principles of making and using hot beds in your garden or allotment. This is an eco-friendly way of providing heat so as to grow both early and late crops so extending the season by several months.

Each course will be on a Saturday from 10 am to 3 or 4 pm at the Cellar Project allotments in Keighley and the cost will be £20. Drinks will be provided but bring a packed lunch.

The hot bed courses being run by Jack First will be held on Sat January 29th and Feb 26th 10am – 3 or 4 pm. To book a place please phone him evenings after 6 from Monday Jan 10th (not before) on 01422 202648 to book a place on your preferred date (if you can manage either please let him know too). It may be possible to hold another course if there is a big demand.
