AUTUMN COUNTRYSIDE SHOW OCTOBER 2012

WEALD & DOWNLAND OPEN AIR MUSEUM


Chichester Organic Gardening Society has again presented an eye catching and informative stall at a local event, this time at the WDOAM Horticultural Show on the weekend of 13/14 October 2012.

There was a steady flow of people taking an interest in the society and stopping to chat about their favourite gardening topics. We were lucky in that our stall was under cover in the big marquee and so the inclement weather did not dampen our spirits or deter us from trying to recruit new members. Many people were drawn to our stall by the leaflets we had on companion planting, and organic methods of weed control.
The weekend was given added value when some of our members who had entered items in the various competitive classes were awarded certificates.
Penelope Johnstone won first place for her bowl of Egremont Russett Apples, and third place for her Rhubarb and Ginger Jam.

Nina Guilfoyle won a first for her Rhubarb Chutney.

Kathy Baker won a second for her vase of garden flowers.
Susan Sinnett-Jones gained second place with her bread rolls.

Altogether it was another rewarding and happy event for COGS' members.
