Activities at our allotment will recommence this spring. Here we will expand our activities to two days a week. On Mondays we will run a session for asylum seekers and refugees, while on Thursdays our sessions will be aimed for people with mental health problems. We aim to continue growing a wide range of vegetables, fruits and herbs. We will also expand our Mother garden capacity, with the intention of producing more plants to share with other community projects.
This new season of food growing is being funded by Tesco Bags of Help. Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of up to £4,000, £2,000 and 1,000 – all raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco Stores – being awarded to local community projects. Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores. The public votes in store who should receive the awards. We thank all of you who voted for us, particularly as we were awarded the highest grant.
Please watch this space for when our first session begins.
