Our main hurdle in putting our plan into action, was funding. With a limited budget, creating an allotment area seemed impossible. However, we wrote several applications to various organisations for help with our project and were over the moon to hear back from two wonderful companies that we had been successful in our funding requests. More information regarding the funds can be found on our grants page.
If you would like to help us to develop our allotment area, help at an after school gardening club, give some gardening advice or help care for the allotment during the holidays, we would love to hear from you.
