The Allotment Project
Interaction with others, calming exercise and the fresh air are known to improve mood, general health and to energize. Add in learning the ancient art of growing plants, vegetables & fruit and you have some skills that can either be taken home or to prospective employers - and our allotment project was born.
Here you can chat, learn, exercise at your own pace and try your hand at a few natural crafts. A few hours at the allotment can revitalise you whilst helping improve fitness, mobility and you can make a few new friends.
…. and we have to say, there's a certain amount of patting on backs, clinking of celebratery tea cups and proud smiles when the harvesting is done.
If we connect with nature, we can reconstruct our soul, spirit and strength.
