Hi All,
An invitation! We're looking for a final push to get the last vulnerable trees in at
the MASTT (Marsden and Slaithwaite Tranisiton Towns) community orchard in
Rocher, Slaithwaite, this Saturday, February 13 between 9.30am and 3pm.
It's an opportunity for networking, learning, fresh air and exercise.
The final 18 fruit trees will be planted. Lots of hard work has been done to create a station for each tree.
Trees are to be delivered on Friday, so can you give your help and some
Valentines TLC to give them a good start in life?
Please wear warm clothes,waterproofs, strong footwear and bring
something to drink + a spade if possible.
See you there

Hi all,
Wishing you luck in getting the plot productive this year.
Just wanted to let you know, I'm part of the MASTT growing group, which the Huddders oooby group may wish to join, especially when it has produce to sell to the Green Valley Grocer.
There is a relevant film and and opportunity to meet the group on Monday Jan 25th at 7 in Marsden, for more detaials see the MASTT website at:
And here is some more info about the film and another upcoming event, cut and pasted from a MASTT email:
* We have high hopes for our events and projects in 2010, the year will be kick
started with 'A Farm for the Future', an inspiring documentary from Rebecca
Hoskings, screening at Marsden Mechanics Hall on Monday 25th January. This
documentary focuses on how existing methods of farming cannot be carried forward
in to the future due to the methods relying heavily on oil. This is event is
FREE and will start at 7pm sharp, after the screening we will move to The New
Inn to discuss the documentary over a couple of drinks.

* The second event of 2010 will be 'Seedy Sunday', a seed swap for existing
growers but a fantastic opportunity for those interested in starting to grow
their own to come along and find out where to start. Experienced growers will be
on hand to offer advice over a cup of tea. Bring your seeds to swap, take what
you need and have a great time. Sunday 28th February 2010, further details to
If you need more on any of this please get in touch with me or contact MASTT through the website.

Hi folks. I was at the first meeting at the Media Centre, can't make tomorrow easily, when is the next one. I'm assuming these are the regular meets at Deighton club?
