We have use of fantastic allotment space in Oldfield Park and are grateful to a multitude of hard-working volunteers who have helped develop our raised beds, sheds and picnic tables.

We may not have won any prizes yet for our funny-shaped veggies and wacky flowers, but we do have a lot of fun!!   Our makers tend the allotment at the start of most days during the growing – and pickling! – season.

Gardening is a multi-sensory experience and we relish the smells of the herb garden, the taste of our soft fruit – and some of us don’t mind the feel of grubby fingers after weeding! This is a great place for growing in confidence, learning new skills and building community. Everyone has something to contribute and we enjoy utilising and sharing our harvest.
