August Community Day - Sunday 20th August 2023

Excellent work by our volunteers on our community day. A group set about filling in the potholes around the site. Hard graft for them and hopefully will last a wee while. Weeding was done in the borders as we all know those weeds just never stop growing. Grass was mown around the site too. The volunteers who supplied home bakes and did the teas and coffees were very much appreciated at the end. Lemon and gin cake with a mystery ingredient some thought to be courgette but was actually cucumber, beetroot brownies, raspberry cake, scones and shortbread, plenty to go round.

Once again Slopefield Allotments were on the City Council’s itinerary for a visit by the judges assessing Aberdeen’s bid for a Britain In Bloom City Category Award.

July Community Day - Sunday 23rd July 2023

Another busy afternoon up at the site. The weather on the whole was kind to us to keep on top of those weeds. Seriously, where do they all come from! Changes were made in the Community Plot with the slabbed pathway to the Hutton Hut being extended to be more accessible for all users too. Great effort from all volunteers today. Also home bakes after the work with plotters making use of raspberries and courgettes in the lovely cakes that were on offer. Had to have more than one slice 😋

June Community Day - Sunday 25th June 2023

A big thank you to our volunteers this week. It's been time to cut and strim the grass around the site again to keep it all looking so good. Today we also had folk weeding the communal verges. We are very lucky to have great bakers amongst us too so enjoyed a lovely cuppa, homebakes and a catch up with fellow plotters after all the hard work.

Additional Community Day - Sunday 14th May 2023

We are going to have an adhoc community afternoon this weekend. The site is kept looking so lovely with the hard work of volunteers who are Slopefield allotment holders themselves and any plotter is more than welcome to come along and help out.
We need a volunteer or two for cutting the grass. Please come along on Sunday to help with this. All plotters can do their bit here by keeping the grass verges of your plot free from stones and debris. This makes the job of grass cutting so much easier and helps keep our mower in better shape too.

The borders at the top and bottom of the site need to be tidied of weed growth and blown debris. Also the potholes on the pathways require attention, as well as plant sale prep.
