Calder Food Hub’s community allotment at the Redacre Growing Project is going from strength to strength. We have finished all of the raised beds, planted potatoes, put in a selection of fruit bushes and erected a greenhouse. The allotment also houses our new tool library, which is available for all Calder Food Hub members to access.
Our allotment group is open to anyone who wants to learn about growing, or wants to grow some vegetables but has no access to land. We meet every Sunday as a group, though many of us are found pottering around on other days. Eventually we hope to use the allotment as a training resource to teach people about growing their own food.
