Pauline (plot 9) is organising a Society trip to the Autumn Flower Show at Harrogate on 14th September 2013.
The Vegetable displays at the autumn show are really amazing and there are various talks and question and answer sessions on growing that we've always found useful.
There's a wide range of stands with plants, seeds, tools and equipment and the stand staffed by volunteers from the Leeds Federation of Allotment Societies always provides something new and interesting (at the Spring Show it was how to build a greenhouse heating system from an old radiator and some lengths of piping).
The cost will be around £23 per person which will include entry to the Show and coach travel from Harpers Lane to the showground. (The Society is providing a small subsidy from the funds we were given for fact-finding missions by the now defunct Allotment Regeneration Initiative).
There is a notice up in the brew room for those interested to 'sign up' or simply see Pauline or Margaret.
