Did anyone see this article in the Daily Mail today- dont judge me!
Amazing photos of largescale strawberry production. Hydroponically grown, and of a really decent size, though I cant imagine they would taste of anything much!
This nursery in Chichester, West Sussex, was packed to the rafters with rows of strawberries as far as the eye can see.

The Green Bronx Machine is a school based community garden project in New York . It has transformed the lives of students, the local community and turned into a sustainable business!
Stephen Ritz is a teacher and the project co-ordinator- he's vibrant and enthusiatic and talks very quickly!
He's clearly in love with his students and their achievements. This is an amazing video- absolutely worth the watch if you are intersted in community gardening.

Are you on an Allotment Waiting List?
Looking for extra space to grow vegetables?
There is space available in Lee.
A small food growing project in Lee (Burnt Ash Hill)has an abundance of space available and is looking for willing people to help out on a regular basis.
You get your own small plot and in exchange a share of the harvest goes to homeless families.
Experienced gardeners as well as beginners are warmly invited to come along.There will be plenty of opportunity for the old hands to pass on their skills and knowledge.
Now THAT'S a great deal!
Would you like to get more involved?
Eventually this growing space will be made into a garden which involves the wider community.
So in addition the project is also looking for people who would like to help run the garden.
Contact: Anna on 07730 637 191 for further information.
