ADVICE AND INFORMATION
Nuthurst Community Allotment
Delicious, sustainable, seasonal and sociable: The pioneering allotmenteers of the Nuthurst Community Allotment are on a mission to grow mind-blowingly delicious and organic produce. They want to bring the whole community along for the ride and feed as many people as they can from their patch of West Sussex. Their aim is to create a nice place where people can learn and grow and socialise. The children of St Andrew’s School are already on board with plans for an after-school gardening club. The allotmenteers also intend to set up a field kitchen on site, from which they will produce meals from any remaining fruit and veg that hasn’t been delivered to local residents or taken home. Profits from the meals as well as the delivered produce will be ploughed straight back into the allotment. No profit. Just deliciousness.
So do get in touch – and let them know whether you are interested in becoming an allotmenteer, a sponsor, a taste-tester or just a general helpful type person. Everyone is welcome. Visit their website and follow them on Instagram.
Young Propagators Society
The society sets out to encourage young horticulturalists into propagation and nursery roles. Creating a forum through their published zines and social media, they set out to explore the practice of propagation and inspire learning. Their focus is on smaller scale specialist and scientific knowledge of propagation. In the quarterly printed zine members contribute content which they would want to see themselves. Giving them a place to discuss their research and tell their story. With a cut and paste method of combining art and the written word, the zine shows off the many talents of the horticulturists of today. The zine is free and produced using the donations from it’s members to keep the dissemination of information and propagation techniques accessible to all. Read a selection of their zines: Issue 1, Issue 2, Issue 4

If you have an interest in architecture (we do), then you’ll love the miniature representations of some of the world’s most beautiful buildings. You’ll see some of his bookends demonstrating classical orders of architecture at our Nursery. Timothy Richards is a genius.
