Springing into action!

If you go down to the woods today… you’ll see snowdrops are in bloom! A sure sign that spring is just around the corner, and that it’s time think about our next growing season.

To kick things off, Bandstand Beds will be holding its AGM on Tuesday 17 March at the Bread & Roses (annex at the back of the pub), 68 Clapham Manor Street SW4. Start time 6.30pm. And with so many exciting plans for the year ahead we need some new committee members. Can you help? Then please get in touch – email ccbandstandbeds@gmail.com

Have you heard? Exciting changes are coming to Clapham Common’s Green Waste Depot (below).

This derelict land will be reclaimed to create a new community food-growing space, with raised beds, a polytunnel to raise young plants and free compost. Can you help make this happen? If you would like to get involved and help set up the new food-growing space, or would like updates on the project’s progress, then keep an eye on this website or email us (as above).

Our first event this year will be on 21 March, when Bandstand Beds and The Spinney nursery, on Windmill Drive, will be holding a gardening session. This will be an opportunity to start sowing seeds for the growing season ahead, and to hear your views and our news about the planned changes to the Green Waste Depot. We’ll be at The Spinney from 11am until 1pm.

Look forward to seeing you soon!
