Desborough Allotment and Garden Association

Dawn Conaty

I have been a plot holder for four years and I was talked into the role of secretary three years ago.
I am not lucky enough to be retired yet, but am very lucky in that I enjoy what I do for a living in the world of cricket.
Mum and dad had a long garden when I was gowing up and I recall great evenings sitting on the doorstep with my friends shelling peas and eating most of them before they made the pan.
I learn each year that I garden and what I love more than anything is the tranquility of our allotments along with the great wisdom and friendship that I have encountered over the years, never have I spent more time on a bench listening and learning from those around me.
