We were very pleased to find out last month that Heart of England Community Foundation has approved applications for two grants to support our work at the allotment. In addition to our current Tesco Bags of Help grant, these two extra grants – Harry Payne and Birmingham and Black Countries Community Fund, will help us run two gardening sessions a week. The grants will go towards further coordination of the sessions, tools, food, and travel expenses.
Mondays will be aimed at refugees and asylum seekers. Thursdays will be for people with mental health problems.
This year we have been cultivating a range of vegetables and fruits, and have already begun harvesting some produce.
Contact us if you wish to attend.
