The outdoors offers education and exploration in the bucket load! We support local schools in teaching their pupils about where their food comes from, how the wildlife helps and what we can do to help nature in return – Manor Way Allotments have been inviting Pebble Brook school onto their site for a number of years and is always a great success!
Individual sites have raised copious amounts for their chosen charities this year!
Do you need our help or have any suggestions for next year? Get in touch via our contact page.
The Federation meetings are open to all site committee members and will take place quarterly from now on!
Please keep your photos, news and suggestions coming to firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring is finally upon us!
There are lots of exciting things in the pipeline this year!
Firstly, we look forward to joining the Mayor of Crewe, Benn Minshall for his FairTrade Fortnight event, in partnership with the Co-Op - this will be held at the "What's happening in North Street" Cafe on February 29th between 11am and 3pm. All are welcome, and if you've anything you'd like to display or share, please send this to the Federation email account before February 21st. This event is all about the work we do for and with the community and about the preservation of our environment.
We are also looking to join the Creative Crewe team for their mental health awareness event in the town square in March, and their horticulture show in the summer! Details to be confirmed.
If you see any events that might be suitable for us to join in with, please share your ideas via email!

Not enough people entered the scarecrow competition in November, so, there will be a packet of wildflower seeds sent to thank all who showed their support, and this year, we will run the competition in line with the annual allotment competition.
Thank you again to all that participated!
