About Us:

Gosport Allotment Holders and Gardeners Association is an active and thriving local organisation that provides services to our members through our trading huts on allotment sites, educational talks by specialised speakers and arranging two open shows every year and a plant sale.

Each year we see new people take on an allotment plot who have limited experience of how to get the most out of the land. Some people underestimate the time that is needed and often they give up, or maybe they just don't know there is a right way up to plant a potato. At the same time, we know there remains huge interest in growing produce for ourselves and families that is not contaminated with chemicals and pesticides or has not travelled hundreds or thousands of miles to get to our table. Those who do grow their own fruit and vegetables know the taste or home or locally grown produce can not be beaten.

We want to provide an innovative new service to inspire the next generations of people who want to grow their own fruit and vegetables. We want to help people who have limited or no growing experience with organised training for a growing season on specially created mini-plots at allotment sites. We are not going to dig or weed the plot for them but be on hand with practical guidance and support to give them confidence to later move on to a regular plot. For those who have a plot but are still unsure of what to do we also wish to provide specific short training sessions or a programme of master classes on allotment sites to help people get the best out of their plot.

We need your help so we can set up the training plots and the shared training shed and shared greenhouse to start growing and propagating. We also need to create training materials and provide the trainers (some volunteer, some professional) to deliver the training. Ultimately, we want to do this on each of the larger allotment sites in the Borough and we will trial on a single site in the first year and the Council have agreed to support us with allocation of plots to achieve this.

Thank you for your support and good luck! Please help us to get people Growing in Gosport. We believe that we must keep Allotment Sites fully occupied so that the future of these open spaces is safeguarded.

 

Yours sincerely

Mr Jim More

Chairman
