Beginners Allotment course

Hello fellow plot holders!

Just a quick message to tell you about a new course that Trafford College will be running at Southern Allotments from 26th April – 24th May 17, 13.30 – 15.30pm.

The course has been created to help engage potential new plot holders and support them onto their first nursery plot, the ideal outcome being that individuals or a collective group take on one of the vacant plots with some reassuring support from everyone.

The course is funded by the Skills Funding Agency and costs £50 for those who can afford to pay and is funded fully for those who are on certain benefits, so if you know someone who’s thinking about taking up an allotment or indeed, just wants to learn something new, please promote so more people can benefit from this wonderful society of ours.  We have a a great tutor delivering this course – Liz Cole, Liz is a local and trained RHS tutor and has worked for the college for many years and who inspires learning. She has delivered courses throughout Trafford and currently works with the Whitworth Art Gallery and has a wealth of knowledge and expertise.  We hope that this is the first course of many and that we can expand our learning provision so that all society members can benefit and make our plots even better. Who knows, your plot might be featured on the course as a model of success!

Happy growing!


Craig, Plot 81
