Allotment gardening at the community allotment plot, our "Green Gym"
On our community plot at Barratts Field allotment site people get the chance to try allotment gardening. The site has raised beds and pathed flat paths so that people with mobility problems / wheelchairs are able to access and make use of the site easily. A large greenhouse allows for year round work in all weather conditions, there's even a covered teaching area where we can give cooking demonstrations.
Our "Green Gym" is a great form of exercise for people who like to see an end result for all their hard work. Throughout the year there will be a variety work to be done from pricking out seedlings to double digging.
We have planned it so that there will be produce all through the year and we will show you how the things you grow can be used in a balanced diet.
