While we may not be able to get together in person for the Newcastle Allotment & Garden Show, we still want to try to celebrate all the fantastic people who enjoy growing produce and taking part in the Show each year.
So this year we're going to be celebrating these fantastic talents virtually!
We've created a Facebook group where we're inviting everyone to showcase all the amazing things you've been doing throughout the year and we want to see content from ALL age groups and abilities!
- Photographs and videos of produce grown this year
- Blogs and vlogs of growing your plants, vegetables and ﬂowers
- Video tutorials for jam making, beekeeping, hot bins, ﬂower arranging
- How to guides on re-purposing and environmental sustainability
- Family recipes with produce grown in your allotment
You can also send any content direct to the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On 19 September 2020 we're then going to bring together some of the best content we've seen in a virtual celebration of Newcastle's Allotments and Gardens!
There will be some great prizes up for grabs, so you should submit your entries now for:
- Quirkiest Shed Internal
- Allotmenteering in Lockdown (text/photos/video)
