WHO WE ARE & WHAT OUR AIMS ARE.

We grow organic vegetables and fruit on three allotment sites and are in the process of bringing a fourth site into production this year. We are constructing raised beds on the new site so that people who use wheelchairs or have other mobility problems can get actively involved in the project. We have two polytunnels where we grow tomatoes, chillies, peppers, cucumbers and other vegetables that benefit from being grown under cover. Volunteers who join the project are able to learn or develop their gardening skills by helping with a wide range of tasks and activities on the sites. These include digging, sowing, planting out, watering, weeding and general maintenance. As well as growing produce and learning new skills, volunteers benefit from being in the open air, getting healthy exercise and meeting new friends. You do not need any previous gardening experience to get involved. We provide all the tools, seeds and equipment you need. More experienced volunteers are also available to offer friendly help and advice about growing your own fruit and vegetables. We run 3 gardening sessions each week on Monday, Thursday and Saturday mornings. The Monday and Thursday sessions start at 9.30am while the Saturday session starts at 10.00am. Refreshments are provided including homemade soup and bread at the end of each session. Our delicious, home-made soup!
