On allotments and other earthy matters, in and around Stoke-on-Trent.
Tuesday, 2 April 2013
A unwanted municipal 18-hole golf course in Stoke-on-Trent has been given Council permission to be turned into a "community market garden", which sounds like good news. I think that means it's to be a huge allotments site which grows commercially? But I'd guess also with community features, like work for agricultural apprentices, work activities for the disabled, maybe a petting zoo for the local kids etc.
Urbivore, who are taking over the site, are advertising now for a Head Gardener and a Horticultural Trainer. Bizarrely, they've illustrated the job ads with a picture of "beautiful Cannock Chase". Erm, wrong place, lads...
