GRO-FUN wish to invite you along to the Many Hands Plot at the Ashley Vale Allotments in St Werburghs for some wonderful cob-building fun on the 9th and 10th October, from 10-4ish. (Weather permitting)

Cob building is a brilliant, transferable skill which uses local, natural materials and allows for creative ideas to manifest-you may have seen the ovens in the Glastonbury permaculture gardens? Clay shaped bees, dragons, bears have all been seen there over the years using this technique that is both traditional and sustainable and a process so tactile, fun and quick .

Anyone interested in coming along for a minimum stay of 3 hours either 10am-1pm or 2p-5pm needs to book a place so we keep the group number to a manageable size (the site is a little cramped) and let GRO-FUN know what time to expect you. If you want to come all day or for the whole two days so you can see the process from start to finish that’s fine, just let us know beforehand.

Hot drinks and biscuits will be provided and the farm cafe or pub are very near the site for your lunchtime needs. Bring wellies if you dont want to cob barefoot and wear working clothes as you will get muddy!

Here is a link to a map of the plot’s location.

Book your morning/afternoon place for the 9th or 10th October asap. In case of rain your place will be carried forward to the same time on the following weekend, 16th and 17th October, unless you inform us that you are unavailable then. Please tell us when you book if you dont want your place carried forward in case of bad weather.

Places are limited to ten for each slot. Places are free. Please please tell us if you cant make it.
E mail this address to book or call Nadia on 07973847894.

Thanks for reading.
