Meet the Team: Gavin Cassidy

Gavin Cassidy has recently joined the Urban Green Clean team as our new Local Food and Allotments Officer. This week we sat down with him to get to know him better and heard all about his passion for his new role, got some advice for budding growers, and his unique former home.

Plotting For The Future

This week is National Allotment Week – an annual celebration of the role allotments play in helping people live healthier lives, grow their own food, develop friendships and bolster communities.

Getting your allotment ready for growing season

The seasoned gardeners and growers among you will know February is the ideal time to prepare your allotment for some of the earliest outdoor sowings in March. There may be a chill in the air, but spring is just around the corner and now is the time to get started, so we asked our Allotments Officer, Mark, for some of his top tips.
