For many years, Trevor Taylor, the Society's Honorary President, produced a regular allotment newsletter called Weeder’s Digest, which usually included growing tips, general allotment news and recipes. Here is our equivalent.
This page is an at-a-glance view of what is new, what is happening and, hopefully, what is interesting in the world of allotmenteering and of the Society. If there is anything you think we should be talking about, or anything you would like to contribute, let us know.
The Society page contains important documentation and details of your committee representatives.
Tips, recipes, personal experiences - all here
We always like to record events, people, plots, and the changing of the seasons in photographs. If you have any you'd like to display, let the webmaster know.
