We had our annual Harvest Feast at the Methodist Church Hall on Saturday 10 October during the morning and at lunchtime. The hall was decorated with berries and autumn leaves and flowers and some impressive pumpkins grown by our members. We offered delicious homemade produce, including seed spelt biscuits, beetroot and chocolate cake, and apple cake with coffee or tea. There were a variety of homemade soups for lunch including spicy parsnip, butternut squash, and watercress soup with homemade bread, rolls or muffins.
There was a photographic display showing the plots and planters around town, including the latest Vicarage Plot in St Lawrence Vicarage front garden and the Sensory Garden at the Limes that ALFI volunteers work on.
We offered bags of eating applies and packets of autumn seeds and green manure.
Plenty of local people dropped in to look around and sit and have a chat over coffee or lunch. Donations were invited and profit from the event will be used for materials needed for the twelve sites around Alton that ALFI garden.
