I hope you all had a great Easter! It has been lovely here on the plots, the days are stretching like a bear coming out of hibernation, hungry for people; come back quick leeds needs you! Snow is still hanging around shivering in the shade but the sun has warmed the earth, the robin is happy for company and you can sense the vitality and energy budding in every corner. The Rhubarb is rearing red heads bull like strong and tender the fruit bushes are unfurling delicate fresh leaves ready to bloom like butterflies.
Last Thursday was another productive allotment session unearthing layers of allotment history. Leaf by leaf the story is uncovered each glimpse of the past is helping to write the new. Val is back on the scene and I am off for a while but I am happy that people are getting to grips with the ancient skill of making it up as we go along.
Cycling away into the last of the sunshine today I pondered the ethics of less participation for better weather, to work on Saturday or Sunday? Gliding down the last hill right up to my front door my heart was easy. Like soil, water or animal resources a good day should be respected, looked after and even revered. That’s how we treated this beautiful Saturday. Sorry to those that could have made Sunday! I hope you can make the next day that blesses the plots with such generous pride.
This is a selection of books that are held in the Green Action Libary which is kept in a trolly outside Green Action. Leeds University has a much larger collection of books we have a list of some of them that might be relevent to people in Green Action in the Alternative Leeds university library list.
The elections are coming up soon. I think Green Action should not tell people who to vote for but I do think that some of us know a few of the people standing from various campaigns. It might be worth while to share some of the information about some of the candidates with you as these people are keenly align to the ethos of Green Action.
