We want to create an area for our families to come and grow their own fruit and veg. We want to promote healthy eating amongst our pupils and local community.

Our project is for our community led by the women and girls in our community. We want to create a space for women and girls to do something purposeful that feels like it is theirs. The women and girls in our community will have ownership over the project. The allotment will be used to create a colour garden whereby we will be growing natural dyes that the children can use in school. We will also be growing fruit and veg that can be used in school and parents can take home. We hope to encourage healthy eating amongst our community. We would also like for our children to understand where food comes from.

What we'll deliver:

  • A greenhouse
  • Fruit and veg
  • Benches (Communal Area)

Why it's a great idea:

Our project will benefit people who live very close by as they will have free access to fresh fruit and veg especially the elderly. Local mums who can come and grow their own fruit, veg and herbs for their dishes. Environmentalists and keen Gardners who may not have the space in their own gardens. It will also bring a greater sense of community and shared space. We hope it will also greatly benefit the children in our school to eat healthier. We hope to inspire some green fingers that will continue planting and eating healthy for years to come.
