5. We have had this request from Karla Santacara at Claremont School, “I am a teacher at Claremont Primary School as well as the Environment coordinator. We are looking to find some support in growing plants and maintaining our allotment as we have a fantastic space and some good resources for it. Would this be something that your plot holders would be able to help with?” If you are interested in helping contact Karla on firstname.lastname@example.org
