This project, started in 2016, has engaged local volunteers in the design and development of our community growing project sited in Ashley Vale Allotments next door to the Farm. The polytunnel and garden is hosting on-going activities, benefiting more than 300 people per year.
Support the project by buying vegetable and herb plug plants direct from Propagation Place.
The project seeks to:
Scale up local food production and accessibility by launching a propagation polytunnel, coordinating shared equipment & resources and developing opportunities to sell and buy garden produce
Increase community cohesion through events that bring people together and get us talking, especially events that celebrate the diversity of our community
Educate, inspire and connect allotment plot holders, seeking to increase retention of gardeners, improve knowledge about growing on a sloped site and encourage greater productivity.
Who’s the project for?
People from local communities and neighbourhoods looking to get more involved in their community
Older people and those with physical disabilities or mobility issues to get involved using our accessible gardening facilities
Underrepresented community groups including single parents, young people, children and families and those with learning difficulties and those suffering from mental distress.
