March field-day & Annual General Meeting
|Date-||Saturday 1st March 2014
|Where-||Rob’s property, Grammar Street, Kimbolton Village.
|Bring-||your lunch, a coat and suitable footwear.|
We visit two contrasting, neighbouring properties for this event.
The first, originally a pastoral grazing block [in town] that has evolved over time into a sustainable woodlot/lifestyle holding.
And the second, a property, purposely planted over 50 years, establishing an exotic woodland garden environment.
|10am-||Rob Green’s diverse and interesting property, including gardens, trees, timber plantations, saw milling and timber drying, dressing and finishing. Also a joinery shop, where home-grown timber is crafted into numerous creations, including casket manufacture.
|12pm-||Lunch in conjunction with a short and painless AGM.
|1pm-||John & Barbara, ‘Glencolyn’ woodland garden and B & B. Grammar Street Kimbolton. Established 50 years ago by Colin Spicer, horticultualist and nurseryman. This property boasts an extensive collection of exotic trees, shrubs, rare bulbs and perennials etc in a spectacular park-like setting. It is hoped to have Colin join us for a conducted tour of his former property.|
