Lansdowne Allotment Project


Sun 24 Mar 2013
Come and help us make our new allotment site amazing!


WYAC ACTIVITY- Lansdowne Allotment Project

Sunday 24th March 2.00pm to 4.00pm
WYAC Allotment, Lansdowne Road, Worcester

On-road parking is limited as this site is within a residential area. Please be careful not to block driveways etc.. You may decide to park in Worcester City Centre and walk to the site – it is about 15 minutes walk from the nearest car park at Queen Street, Worcester. We will meet at the north gate entrance to the allotment next to the Allotment shop, Lansdowne Road. Look out for orange t-shirts!

This will be our first all group activity at WYAC’s very own allotment site! Find out all about the archaeology of this area of Worcester (lots of Roman stuff!), and learn how people used to care for the land in years gone by. You will be preparing the ground for planting our Flax seed, deciding the layout of the site and what to plant throughout the year as well as creating a willow hurdle fence using the same methods that have been used for centuries. There’s lots to be done to transform our site into a fantastic resource for the next few years – we’ll even be doing some excavation later in the year!

          You will need:
            Gardening gloves
            Old clothes
            Wellies/ boots
            Waterproof/ warm clothing
            Something to drink

 

PLEASE NOTE: There are no toilet facilities on site so please make sure you go before you arrive!
