Community allotment What is it all about? What is it all about? FUNDING In June 2018 we were informed that our funding application to the Postcode Local Trust was successful and we were awarded £19,985 to create an outdoor community classroom. The project started in September 2018 when we appointed a Project Coordinator and the project will run for twelve months. THE AIM This project aims to secure an overgrown allotment plot & transform it into an outdoor networked community classroom; enabling people to develop life, employability & horticulture skills, improve confidence & participate in physical activity. Produce can be used in the community centre &funds reinvested back into the project. SO FAR... Karen Palmer was recruited as Community Allotment Project Coordinator in September and has been busy creating new relationships and links with local schools, businesses and community organisations. The first phase is to clean up the plot and Karen is busy planning this. We hope to have it cleaned up before the new year and then she can look at phase two which will be to implement the design.
