We are a very diverse group ranging from those with a small vegetable plot to full blown smallholding and any number of levels of self-sufficiency. It doesn't matter if you are just giving your first thoughts to growing your own vegetables in your garden or allotment or perhaps thinking of having a few hens, LSSSC is the place to come for help, advice and support. We believe in what we do and want to encourage others to look toward a healthy, sustainable way of living, but we are not against having a good time either.
Most of our meetings involve a communal lunch table, where there is always something delicious to eat and drink, provided by the members attending. Whatever the meeting is about, there is generally a bit of a get together before & after. This is where you can collar someone to ask how to do something, or to give you the benefit of their experience. It isn't long before you will feel comfortable giving others your advice. You never finish learning in this game!!
We hold monthly meetings and social get-togethers, usually structured around a particular topic, but sometimes just for a natter to like-minded people. Obviously it's not a compulsory condition of being a member, but the help and experience you can tap into at a meeting is worth the travelling!
ARTICLES FOR SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER
Don't forget September's Meeting is our usual stand at Wragby Show on the 6th, from 9.00am onwards.
If you would like to help run the stand or sell produce please contact me, or any committee member for details.
Alternatively, if you are attending the show do come and find us and have a cuppa and a chat.
Fingers crossed for good weather!
It is proving quite difficult to find a way to organise the proposed November meeting on Mushroom Identification. Most experts are based a long way from here and any practical courses have minimum numbers, are miles away and cost a lot!!
There is an organisation based in Nottinghamshire who I have contacted about a speaker, but the following might be a more interesting option.
The weekend of October 10th/11th is national Fungi Weekend and the nearest events to us are at Sherwood Forest, Cambridge Botanical Gardens and Leicester Botanical Gardens. The events include 'fun' activities, demonstrations and exhibits, along with forays.
I appreciate that these all involve a fair bit of travelling so thought that if enough people were interested I could organise a minibus from a central location. This would involve some cost but I'm sure we could subsidise the cost from meeting funds.
Would anyone who is interested please contact me asap.
