On Landguard Point is the East of England’s celebration of the arts and cultural activities in the lead up to this year’s Olympics, and Dig & Sow are one day community test-pit excavation events taking place in each of the region’s counties to foster appreciation for our shared heritage in a rewarding community project.
Dig & Sow began in Hertfordshire last September with an excavation in Ashwell, where 34 sites were dug by more than a hundred residents and volunteers in the one day. You can read more about the Ashwell event here and watch the video below. The Ashwell dig was shortly followed by test-pit excavations in the Maidenhall allotments, Ipswich, filmed as part of the Pacitti Company’s film of the On Landguard Point cultural activities to air later in the spring.
To Register: If you wish to offer your garden for digging and/or volunteer to excavate, please contact On Landguard Point directly by e-mailing Ellie Carter at firstname.lastname@example.org or info.@onlandguardpoint.com stating the county where you would like to participate clearly in the subject line: CAMBS/ESSEX/BEDS/NORFOLK or call them on 0207 488 0800 – they will need your name, email address, telephone number and postcode and to know whether you would like to HOST your own test-pit site or volunteer to DIG elsewhere.
