A series of Midsummer open workshops, co-ordinated by Somerset Community Food begins next weekend.

There are opportunities to visit productive allotments, gardens and smallholdings across Somerset at the height of summer. Find out about different gardening techniques, be inspired to grow and cook more local healthy food and get involved with community growing projects. 

Transition Minehead and Alcombe are running a number of Allotment Taster Days at the Friends and Family Community Allotment in Alcombe. Beginning on Saturday 6th June, 2-4pm there is a 'No-dig vegetable growing' taster session - an unkempt but effective approach to cultivating soil. No growing experience is required. Refreshments will also be available and people can take refuge in the poly tunnel if it rains!
The well-established allotment is run on organic and Permaculture principles using various methods of crop protection and lots of mulch and compost. Visit the the Transition Minehead and Alcombe website for updates on the plot.


Eat Cary and the 'Use Less Share More' group is getting the local community together at The Big Lunch on Sunday 7th June at 12 noon. The Use Less Share More members will provide the first course and you are invited to bring food to share for the second course. There will be games and quizzes for the children (and perhaps the adults too) and plenty of space for littlies to run around.
Experienced gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and offer tips and techniques for successful vegetable and fruit growing, and if you are an experienced gardener yourself you'll be able to bring your own wisdom to the mix.
Eat Cary is a new venture and has much to learn. This will be a great opportunity to catch up with developments in the garden. Learn how mulches and crop rotation are being put into practice and see the new polytunnel is used – with tomatoes and cucumbers growing well, watered by a simple irrigation system.
