Treasurer - Hanging Hill - Plot 27
Maren gardens at Hanging Hill. She got her first bramble clad allotment in 2002, installed a greenhouse for her private orchid collection and transformed the plot into a productive garden. Occupancy was very low at the time, so she took on more plots grow fruit, vegetables and flowers for the bees. She's taking care of all financial aspects of the association - MAA subscriptions, purchases or donations - while also running the highly beneficial seed scheme for members - ask for a catalogue if you’re interested or email her if you wish to use the online order facility.

Denise’s approach is to try to create a plot which is both productive and attractive to work in with a great variety of vegetables and fruit. Her priority is to see the allotments at full capacity and as many people as possible able to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

Richard started gardening at Foxes Pieces in 2018, having moved to Marlow from South East London. His aim is self-sufficiency in fruit, vegetables and cut flowers, which he sometimes manages! Richard adores cultivating sweet peas and enjoys hopelessly attempting to grow unusual vegetables. He is passionate about encouraging wildlife and is delighted to have slow worms for company at his allotment. In real life Richard is a classical musician.

Huw & Kate took over Plots 28/28A in 2020 after a 4 year stint at Hanging Hill - Foxes Piece being much closer to home for more regular visits. We are aiming to cultivate a range of fruit, vegetables and flowers with a rhubarb bed, asparagus and fruit trees all newly planted. The first target is having sufficient raspberries in production to satisfy voracious grandsons on their regular visits! In the meantime the scarecrow has proven a great attraction……
Member - Hanging Hill - Plot 37b
Ian took on Plot 37b at Hanging Hill back in 2016 and after creating 16 raised planters set about growing lots of vegetables and of course plenty of rhubarb! Never having grown anything before the first couple of years were all a bit trial and error but he now seems to have finally worked things out! Always keen to try growing new things - next years ‘project’ being kohlrabi, celeriac and artichoke.
