In the Covid lockdown of 2021, Casper Macindoe started up the Street Allotment Project on a tiny plot by his flat. Never having grown anything before, he used social media to appeal to the kindness of friends and the community, and set about creating a little veg-growing paradise. It was so inspiring, other people approached Casper, offering him use of patches of neglected land next to pubs, youth centres and even in private gardens, so that the project now has five plots around town, covering about 500 square metres of gardens, worked by an enthusiastic team of growers of varying past experience. The food is shared among our allotmenteers and surpluses are donated to community organisations. We aim to build and support a network of street allotments, involving strong local communities, who help themselves and each other to produce and share healthy, delicious food for free, supporting new plots as they start up and develop.
Lots of opportunities are offered through the Street Allotment Project for learning organic and nature-friendly gardening skills, both with us and through our partner organisations. Nothing can quite compare with the joys of being outdoors, getting your hands in the soil, and harvesting and eating the freshest fruits and veggies you grew yourself, and working with a group of lovely, friendly people! There’s usually plenty of cake around, too!
If you'd like to be part of this 'growing revolution', whether novice or experienced we'd love you to join in on the plots.
Spend a season with us and with the support of SAP you could be leading your own community food garden!
