The Felix Project donations table has been set up for less than a month, and already plotholders have donated many, many pounds of produce to this excellent cause, despite the adverse growing conditions and general lack of crop growth. There’s been an exceptional number of courgettes and marrows, and now tomatoes and apples are increasingly coming in. Most of our apple donations go direct to 21 local schools for students to share. Our produce is greatly appreciated, being freshly picked and largely organic. Bob Gowans, who is co-ordinating the donations, wants to say a big thank you on behalf of the Felix Project to all the plotholders who have been donating so generously. The donations table will be there until the end of the growing season, so do please continue to pass on your surplus over the coming weeks.
