Bridport’s Third Annual Potato Day
Saturday January 11th 10-3pm
Bridport United Church,
East St, DT6 3LY
(Not a TTB event)
Please note the change of venue this year for Bridport’s third annual potato day. Pennard Plants, a nursery based in Somerset specialising in heritage and heirloom seeds and plants will be coming along with 60+ varieties of potatoes. Their wealth of knowledge about the varieties they sell and which specific soil conditions they thrive in,
make Bridport Potato Day a must in the gardening calendar. They will also be bringing onion sets, garlic, heritage seeds, fruit trees and bushes. Entry is free and refreshments are available.
Proceeds will go to Dorset Wildlife Trust.
For more information call Jude Hopkins 456528
Bridport Seed Swap
Saturday 15th February 10-12am,
Ropemakers, West St.
(Not a TTB event)Having developed from the seed swap held at Potato Day, this event provides an opportunity for gardeners to come along and enjoy the value of sharing experiences with other local gardeners. Whether you have surplus seed from the free seed packet offer on a magazine, have saved seed from an unusual bean variety, or would simply like to see what others have brought, it would be great to see you there. Come along, have a drink and share in the successes and failures of your gardening season in anticipation of the new one to come. We will be gathering in the back room of the Ropemakers.

Celia Marsh recently moved to Bridport with a view to finding a plot to share
with like-minded self-builders.Is there anyone out there interested in an informal meet-up?
The Head and management of St Mary's School are meeting to discuss having a polytunnel, donated by Peter Williams to grow vegetables for the school kitchen and as a teaching aid. Click here for the new flyer for the Home project.
Home in BridportThis project is growing at an exponential rate, with the chance of a polytunnel being available for St Mary's school, to grow food for the school meals while involving the children in growing their lunch; cookery classes for young parents at the Childrens' Centre; eventually a vegetable stall outside Londis in the Skilling estate, a film made by year three Colfox students on the history of Skilling, part of the commemoration of WW1, and many other ideas - all possibilities which need more volunteers. If you think you can help or are interested, please write to us, or join us in Green Drinks (see below)
The food to run the cookery workshop and feed the gathered members of the other workshops is kindly provided free every week by Washingpools farm, Fruits of the Earth and Jaxsons - thank you for your amazing generosity.
