Dig For Victory plot will appear for D-Day 75Â commemoration next year
A bunch of us visited Highbridge community farm near Eastleigh at the weekend '“ what an experience!
Being in the country, itÂ benefits from the generosity of a farmer neighbour who shares with them 20 acres of arable land. ThisÂ enabled them to create a self-sufficient market gardenÂ on a totally different scale to our community garden at Canoe Lake.
The operating principles and ethos though are similar, embracing green practices, sharing and community involvement together with a can-do-it-together spirit among those who garden there.
Portsmouth is aÂ crowded city, so it'sÂ worth looking out for any growing space opportunities around you '“ and keep an eye out for dig-for-victory initiatives alongside the D-Day anniversary commemorations next year when Southsea Green will cultivateÂ a special wartime plot for South East in Bloom.'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹
