This Oxford Green Week event has already happened. We look forward to seeing you in Oxford Green Week 2018.

Tour of Cripley Meadow allotments

This tour of the Cripley Meadow Allotment site is generally used for new members  and is our introduction to the site.  It is applicable to anyone interested in seeing how a large allotment site works together to reduce food miles and grow vegetables, fruit and flowers whilst working sympathetically with the land and the seasons.

We have no piped water and use wells and harvest water from roofs.  We have green waste plots where members can make use of compost made from grass cuttings and hedge trimmings and bring in leaf mould and wood chip from the locality so reducing the need for more lengthy travel.   We now have two communal orchards  comprising some 200 fruit trees.
