It is that time of year again. Volunteers are selling their home grown plants from their front gardens in the Charlton area. In previous years (other than last year) we have sold our plants at Charlton Station. At the planning stage we decided to assume that Covid rules would limit our ability to gather together. Hence, front gardens again. There is a range of vegetables and flowering plants available, often depending on what has been successfully grown from seeds and cuttings. We do hope that you will come by and support us in what is our major fundraising event of the year.
Those who come to our plant sales may have seen, and even bought, copies of a book, written by gardener friend, Trish Le Gal. Trish also took the luscious photos that illustrate the book.
The title of the book, “Grow Your Own for the ‘Hungry Gap’” refers to the more challenging growing period of late autumn and winter, for those wanting to grow food crops to keep them going all year. Any proceeds from the book go to C.C.G.
If you would like a copy, the donation you make is entirely up to you. If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that arrangement can be made for getting a copy to you.
