News from Crops in Pots

Our Harvest festival weekend with the Himalayan Centre and St James Scottish Episcopal Church on the 24th of October promises to be a wonderful celebration of this year’s harvest, with story-telling, a fermentation workshop and Nepalese Dance, held in St James Church Hall from 12-4pm. There will also be a service at St James church on Sunday the 25th of October to reflect on harvest time.
Leith Lunches will be holding workshops on 25th November and 11th December. Do get in touch if you are interested in booking a place.
We are looking for new board members at Crops in Pots, this would be a voluntary position which is a great opportunity to be involved in the direction and next stages of development of the charity, so people with legal, business or treasurer skills in particular would be a great help.

We are also excited to have an officially constituted Social Enterprise Subsidiary group of the charity, Honeycomb Leith. A team of volunteers is currently meeting monthly to take forward the social enterprise to support and hopefully ultimately sustain the work of the charity. They are in need of a treasurer, please get in touch if you are interested in this role.

As ever, everyone is welcome down on the Croft. Wednesday and Sunday afternoons in particular see people working together on the space, and we would love more people to sign up for the Croft Commons Committee for the upkeep of communal areas. Do come on down and find out what’s going on! Crofters also can be filling their plots with winter planting or green manure to help next growing season. We are also developing our new hot compost system which will give so much life to our crops. Get in touch to find out more about how to get the most from your soil and compost!
