A Community Growing Initiative

Author: oneseedforward (page 2 of 13)

Mintlaw Academy

Donna from Mintlaw Academy got in touch to tell us that her group harvested their potatoes and decided to donate them to the residents of Abbey Court, a sheltered housing complex in the town. Here is Mathew delivering them to the cook there who made them for lunch.
Thanks for sharing!

OSF on BBC Landward

It was a pleasure to take part on BBC Scotland’s Landward with the pupils of Woodside Primary. They talked really well about the garden and fruit & veg they had grown, and showed off their cooking skills.

Who would have thought that our OSF School Garden project would be on TV? Well done kids!

Fettercairn Community

Sandra from Fettercairn Community Allotment sent us some photos of their tatties from seed to growing to harvesting.
The beds are being prepared for next season’s crop, thanks to all your group for taking part!

25th Beechgrove Cub Scouts

Mari-Anne from 25th Beechgrove Cub Scouts sent us some photos of their harvested potatoes. It was great to hear that the scouts enjoyed growing them, and got a grand crop!

Hillside Primary

We had fun at Hillside Primary’s Grub Club this afternoon, where we were talking about seasonal fruit and veg available in Aberdeen just now. The kids and families got some bags of Cara potatoes as well as some Salad Blues to take home along with these vegetables.
We especially like our wonky parsnip!

A big thank you to Philip who gave us a cash donation for our OSF project. We really appreciate it, especially in the current financial climate.
All donations go solely towards the purchase of seeds and plants that we give away for free to schools, individuals and community groups in Aberdeen City & Shire.

Kininmonth School

Mrs Mair from Kininmonth School sent us photos of one group who harvested their potatoes. They were going to sell them at the school fundraiser yesterday as well as offering us something for the community. We are all for sharing so good going kids!

Loirston Primary

Thanks to Julie from Loirston Primary who sent us some photos of the pupils who took part in our seed potato project. The crop was harvested at the last week of term, and from 12 seed potatoes they got 100 decent sized tatties and a few small ones too.
The kids looked like they had fun digging around finding them!

What better way to spend a Friday than with the crew of BBC Landward and the pupils of Woodside Primary, filming a segment about our OSF school garden project for their new TV series.
Well done to the schoolchildren for showing presenter Anne and the team their gardening and cooking expertise 😊

Thanks to Teresa from our Climate Cafe Community for sending us a photo of her newly dug Cara potatoes. How are yours growing?
