Allotmentalists call time - but only for the CIF Fund

Well it's the end of the line for our Carbon Innovation Fund grant, courtesy of Manchester City Council. It's enabled us to do loads of things over the past year; we've had over 500 people down at the Lost Plot or at our Cooking Sessions with Cracking Good Food; we had three major events on site; we ran 28 workshops and had 38 work sessions (we would've had 39 but snow scuppered one!); we worked with over 24 third sector organisations ranging from Offshoots and Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Kitchen Garden to Women Refugees and Asylum Seekers to Action For Sustainable Living and the Kindling Trust.
We're still hoping to be able to run events and sessions down on site and next Saturday we'll have a presence at Chorlton's Big Green Festival, so come along and say hello. Don't forget, we're always looking for new volunteers. We all work together on the allotment, it's great fun and all the produce is shared. We meet every Sunday from 1pm so if you're interested get in touch clare.walker@afsl.org.uk or 07595 873221.
