Giving people the opportunity to imagine, fund & create projects that bring their local area to life
We have just completed an accessible toilet on the allotment and now want to convert a container into a tearoom come clubhouse. This will be none-profit as the project is to promote friendships and connections in our local area of clubmoor. We want to give a haven for people with depression and anxiety, and also people suffering from loneliness. In February 2021 we will be launching a horticulture course that will take people from seed to compost teaching them sustainable growth which will be open for all. We are a diverse group with many nationalities calling Grandison allotments their home. We have had designs done which I provided a link for. We have a great team of volunteers who will help build the project but need funds for all the materials.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Having a community space like this is key to creating friendships helping each other connect and feel better. Being in a natural space does wonders for your wellbeing lifting your mood and helping people ease depression and symptoms of anxiety. Walking through our gates is like entering a vegetable Narnia a safe gated area for children and families too. We run events from here and the local community benefit greatly, especially with vegetable giveaways. One of our plots, Plot 18 is a foodbank plot run by volunteers to supply fresh vegetables and fruit to the St Andrews network. We love being here and are like a big family we want to share this with more people why wouldn’t we. The course we will run next year is with our partners Myclubmoor and incredible edible clubmoor,
