Jersey in Autumn Time
Following the success of Jersey in Spring Time launched in March to help everyone during the difficult time of Covid-19 lockdown, it has been decided to do this again to celebrate Autumn Time in Jersey of all that is good in our Island, gardens, allotments and farms. This is for everyone to get involved in – I would love for you to send your photographs and video footage to me by email on email@example.com and here are some ideas:
Autumn Trees and Shrubs in our lanes and hedgerows
Flowers and plants in your garden, greenhouse or indoors
Your Allotment and what you are growing
Young people involved in growing at home, schools, nurseries and forest schools
Autumn Harvest including Fruit
All aspects of Jersey Agriculture i.e. cows in fields, being milked and on the farm, vegetable planting and processing
Harvesting from the sea and Jersey beaches
Baking at home and school

Graham and his late brother ,Wilfy, spent many hours organising and setting up the FJ Ahier Country Gardens and marking out the plots over 11 years ago.

He will be presented with his Honorary Life Membership when it is safe for all the Members to get together – which all hope will be soon.
