What a sight! A thing of beauty.

I took this photo today at the wild life garden. My 3yr old son Danny was amazed at this dancing fairy like creature as it laid its eggs on the edges of the Wivenhoe wild life pond.

As I was taking this photo my mind wondered back to the first time I met Johnny, (February 2012) we were the first two on sight and began hacking back the twisted stumps. Thank you for your inspiration Johnny...

And thank you to everyone who has been involved in the creation of this special place and made it possible for my son to enjoy this moment with his dad.

Plot the Revolution!

Maybe you can't send 'em up chimneys any more but no one said anything about water butts...

We're keen to exploit adult help too on the community allotment, so if you fancy learning how to grow organic veg we have an open session first Sunday every month 2pm to 4pm - if you like it then come more often. Easy.
3rd August there'll be Kelly Kettle tea, home made cake.. oh and a spot of weeding and sowing - no experience needed, we share the learning together, and the food :)

Get in touch if you want to find out more or need directions. Plot no. 1 at the Wiv allotment site.
