Come visit us at our first grow space
An urban allotment in acton
the space had not been grown on for over 15 years and had been used as a dumping site
the plan for the allotment is to create a grow space on the left and a workshop space on the right
we have been working through out the year to regenerate the soil and create a little slice of paradise so that we can run workshops with local schools and the public
one way we have been regenerating the soil is by adding organic matter -using wood chippings, branches, leaves and other compostable materials - the aim is to recreate the mycelium network
we have also been folding some of it into the soil whilst leaving a layer on top to emulate a forest floor - the aim is to keep the soil insulated and moist which promotes healthier growth for our veg
the allotment is still work in progress
However things are starting to come together
we have managed to start growing some veg on site
we are always looking for volunteers who fancy getting a little green fingered
we want to say a massive thank you to all the volunteers that have helped so far!
We are currently organising workshops and open days for autumn 2019 so watch this space!
