The Allotment Forum Meeting of the 8th June was booked to consist of two talks. One from Paul Campbell project manager from Brighton and Hove Councils Parks team who was to speak about the coming Open Spaces Strategy and how it might affect allotment holders. Unfortunately Paul did not turn up!
The second talk was from Ruth Urbanowicz of the Brighton and Hove Organic Gardening Group. Ruth did turn up and her talk covered many reasons why it was a better option for our own health, the environment and the health of the planet generally for us to ditch the chemicals and to grow organically.
