Gardening gets going again in 2016 at The Nose

Next session Sunday 24 April, 2.30pm.

You might have already noticed the changes made after we got together on Sunday , working off Sunday lunch and getting the beds into shape for spring.

Come down, meet like-minded gardening folk, and burn off the Yorkshire puds with a little light digging or weeding! All welcome, green-fingered or gardening newbies. We’ll be back there again on Sunday 24 April to plant spuds and do fun potatoey things too!

Learning from the floods

We’ve received notification of a York Council for Voluntary Services’ event this Friday.

On Friday April 8, at the Priory Street Centre, York CVS aims to bring together the voluntary sector and those who wish to discuss the lessons learnt from last year’s floods in York.

By sharing the sector’s experiences of how the reaction to the floods could have been improved, we aim to better plan for future emergencies in York. This event is free, and you can find more information and book tickets here.

What to do with ‘waste’ food

Saw this recently:

Don’t Throw That Away! An A-Z of leftovers, tired veg, etc and what to do with them.

and couldn’t believe the inventiveness! I had no idea about the lemons! I’ll definitely be trying that out..

Meanwhile, if any fruit/veg really have gone past human (or guinea pig) consumption, the compost heap will love you for it!
