Micro allotment feedback

Hello Emma,

I wanted to take this opportunity of thanking you and all at Cwm Harry for a wonderful growing year.   Since I took on a micro plot at Pen Dinas, I have learned so much, made new friends, attended courses.   I want to thank everyone for all their help and kindness and never ending support.   At first it was all a bit daunting but with the help and encouragement I have received, I have been able to grow so much and most successfully too!   It has been a very happy time for me.     I also enjoyed the recent micro plot holder’s reunion which gave everyone a chance to catch up and exchange news and tips.   The support has been tremendous and I can’t wait to get growing for a second year.   I have much more to learn and no doubt will make many mistakes along the way too but I know that I can count one hundred per cent on everyone’s help.

What Cwm Harry is and has been doing is so tremendous, giving people in the community a chance to grow for the first time with a small plot, just big enough but not too overwhelming either.   Just right I say.    Keep up the good work and goo luck with all the various launches in Llanidloes and hopefully Welshpool and others.    £10 for a plot is such good value for money.   Nowhere can you get so much for such a small amount.   I don’t know how you do it.   Keep going Cwm Harry.   From a very grateful and happy micro plot holder at Pen Dinas.

Kind regards to you all.
