About me

It seems everyone wants to grow their own and no one can access land to grow on. So, I decided to partner up with my son's school to run a school allotment project called SAPlings.

Everything started in Feb 09' but the children have done alot of the work with me so far. This summer, the gates are open every saturday to members of the public who want to get involved. We've even been on the radio!

Next, I'd like to take the project to other schools. Maybe there are some GOY-ers who know anyone interested? I reckon this could with any community land.

p.s. I'm also an Ecologist
