HOW DOES IT WORK?
A team of community volunteers cultivate and tend the plot throughout the year growing fruit, veg and herbs for the community cafe/shop. In return volunteers take home fresh produce weekly/monthly
You don't need to be an experienced gardener to get involved. You will be guided by others and there are regular skill shares. We ask volunteers to join a team rota and commit 3 hours per week
Our community allotment has a small store of community gardening equipment which is available for volunteer use
EVENTS & ACTIVITIES
Allotment volunteers plan events throughout the year. Including Soil Sisters and Children's Horticultural activities. We encourage residents to grow from home too, window sill herbs, fruit and veg on balconies. Look out for classes to help develop your green fingers
WHAT'S GROWN AT THE ALLOTMENT?
