As part of British Food Fortnight (19 September – 4 October), volunteers at Chorlton’s Lost Plot community allotment (Southern Allotments, off Nell Lane, Chorlton) are having a Harvest Celebration on Sunday 20 September from 1pm onwards.

Anyone interested in joining this community allotment or just finding out a bit more about growing fruit and vegetables is welcome to come down and have a look at the plot and meet other volunteers at the BBQ celebration.

New recruit Ginny McDonald said:

“I’ve only been coming down for a few weeks, but I’m really glad I made the effort to join the Lost Plot team. It’s been great to take home the freshest of spinach, tomatoes and potatoes that a few minutes earlier had been in the ground. The taste difference is amazing.

Everyone is very friendly and there are no ‘experts’. We’re all just learning what to plant when and where. I’d really encourage anyone with an interest in eating more healthily, getting a bit of exercise and just enjoying being out in the fresh air to come down and give it a try”.

For further information either about being involved with the allotment or coming down to the BBQ contact Helen Starr -Keddle at allotment@afsl,
