Our next session is Sunday 21st November, 12PM-3PM
Sessions currently run on the every Sunday of the month.
Hello beginner and experienced growers,
Oxgrow's newsletter is back to update you on the latest news and tasks to do on the field.
New volunteers are always welcome! Just walk in the front gate and we'll come and greet you.
Sessions are now starting at 12pm and ending at 3pm to make better use of the limited daylight.
Tasks this coming session:
This week we'll be readying the polytunnels for winter with a good cleaning and clear out. After that we'll be weeding the raised planters and harvesting chard, radishes, kale and herbs. We'll also be mowing the lawn, doing some scything, strimming, cutting back the brambles and cleaning the tools ready for next year.
Then finally at the end of the session we'll be having a tea and biscuits break before tidying up.
Rules for your safety:
Please start the session by sanitising your hands. If you are able to feel free to wear a mask during the session.
Please bring your own gloves, hand tools if you have them, and hand sanitiser. We'll be practising social distancing so it's important to stay at least 2m away from others and there is a limit of 2 people in a polytunnel at a time.
To help protect other volunteers you can now receive free at-home 30 min covid tests. https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow...
