Welcome to the Grapevine Wellbeing Centre
Winter has arrived
by Ellis Hayward on November 13th, 2016

 Here we are at the end of another year on the allotment. It does not mean that we are shutting the allotment, we will remain open throughout the winter months maintaining the sheds and preparing the raised beds for a new growing season. Jean and Jan have been working very hard to clear the raised beds of old plants and leaves to produce more compost for use in the New Year. 

We have been working with the Buxton Volunteer Centre and Aspire Housing with plans for the lower area of the allotment and some redesign work around the pond area.
This picture illustrates the type of weather experienced at the allotment over the last wek. On Wednesday there was snow lying on the ground. It had cleared on Thursday and I attempted to put the gutters up on the new shed to collect water. The picture shows a heavy shower of hailstones  which fell during the afternoon. 
May I thank all the people who have attended the community allotment this year and hopefully will continue to see them plus a lot more in the New Year.
