A request from a PhD student

Catalina Cruz has sent us this message:

"I´m a PhD student working with Ellen on the benefits of urban agriculture projects. Currently, I'm trying to demonstrate the link between allotments and public health benefits.  I would love to know about your experience. Hence I'm wondering if you can help by answering a quick survey (7 minutes tops and multiple answers) and distributing the survey with other gardeners, we need as many data as we can gather, and we can only accomplish that with your help. I know you've been asked to respond to another survey recently, but I'm looking for people from the same project to answer so we can make comparisons. Hopefully, with your help, we can build an excellent case to stimulate local authorities to support more urban agricultural projects. Thank you for your help".

Mower available

Good home wanted for Black & Decker Rotary electric mower, complete with grass box and long lead. Model RM33. Free, but needs collecting from Crouch End.  Contact Juliet on 0208 341 0497

Finally.... We recently received the sad news that Sid Puddy had died.  Sid was a longstanding and well liked allotment holder (Plot 74a). His funeral was last week and a number of plotholders attended.
