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!

Hello to you all. I've been 'off-line' in more ways than one just recently, so apologies to those who were disappointed at the absence of the April meeting. I now have a wonderful new computer and am spending a couple of days catching up with all those people who promised to host meetings this year.
Our May meeting will be held at the Woodhall Spa Show on May 18th. We will be joining Sarah & Chris and Kev & Karen on their stall, so please drop by and say hello. As always, we shall be showing people what we produce etc so please bring along the fruits of your labour to the stall to sell, be it early veg or pots of jam to homespun wool. If you would like to give a demonstration of your skills, even better. Just email me to let me know what you would like to demonstrate so I can make sure we have enough space.
As well as visiting our Members' Enclosure for a sit down and free cuppa, if you can spend some time manning the stand as well you will be more than welcome. Just turn up on the day.
Visit www.woodhallspashow.co.uk for more info about the show.

Its been quiet on the website for a few weeks as we've all been busy busy busy! With the veg patch to get ready for new produce, egg recipes to be used and used again, and lambing for us.
However, we also have the LSSSC events coming up. Don't forget we at the Woodhall Spa show on Sunday 18th May. It'd be great to see you there!
