Sharing our Veg with our Neighbours!

What to do when you’ve grown too many runner beans, or your courgettes are turning into marrows as you can’t harvest them or eat them quickly enough?


We’ve all seen the boxes people put outside their gates with windfall apples and we’ve had lots of request from our allotment tenants to do something similar.

Fortunately, during lockdown, an allotment tenant with unexpected time on his hands, made not just one but two shelving/storage units. These are located at the gates of our Terrace Road site (opposite Grovelands Primary School & Walton Family Centre) and our Rydens Road site (opposite a care home). Tenants leave surplus crops, so that care staff, families and neighbours can enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables free of charge.
