This is the way we planted spuds down at Leegomery Community Garden last year, and we may do so again. Our crops were given to local residents.
Our only difference is that we used a dibber rather than a fork. So we thought we’d share this video of local gardener and plot holder and host of the Grow Your Own Life channel on youtube. Check out the other videos too!
For other crops, we really recommend checking out Charles Dowding’s No Dig Sowing Guide. Just remember we’re a few degrees NORTH of Somerset in the UK Here in Telford we’re in the equivalent of USDA zone 9a. Although most local gardeners will be aware of some random pockets of microclimates within a few miles of each other.
Our group is part of a global network of communities which set up small-scale, local and practical projects in the areas of food transport, energy, waste, etc. in response to climate change, economic hardship and shrinking supplies of cheap energy and to develop resilient communities better suited to withstand theses pressures.
Transition Telford is a registered charity and part of the Transition Towns Network.
We are a local voluntarily run charity taking small community steps to tackle big global issues.
