Since the summer of 2012 local residents have got together to transform a piece of abandoned land in the centre of Whitley. Now there is a community allotment, supported by Food4families, where local people grow their own fruit and vegetables and share their produce.

 

 

Newcomers are welcome. There are regular workshops and tutors led sessions to help you plan, sow, grow and harvest. We use nature friendly growing methods. 

We share all the allotment between us as well as ideas. Come and go as you please between these hours. There'll be a qualified tutor to guide and advise and welcome you. Come alone, with a friend/spouse/children, all are welcome.

Food4Free! There is nothing like a juicy ripe freshly picked tomato.Produce grown is shared out amongst everyone who grows it. We hold regular cookery sessions, and share our favourite recipes. The local residents decide what to do with any surplus.

Regular Planning meetings. Perhaps you'd like to help with the organisation? The planning meetings are held on the last Sunday of the month in the garden. This Community allotment is supported by Food4families but aims to be managed by the local community.

Come along on Sunday afternoon to find out more or contact us!

Wasteland was cleared in preparation for cultivation

Raised beds were created to assist the growing of the plants and vegatables and stop the spread of wild grass.
