I’ve always had a bit of stuff growing wherever I’ve lived even if it’s been in a pot in the yard or in the garden. The allotment was a step up and even if I’ve had a poor year here there’s always something to eat. I love that you can just come here and pick up something to take home and eat.
The magic of planting seeds and them growing into something that you can eat has never really worn off for me, I just find it amazing.
Coming here is relaxing and calming it’s a good place for me to process my thoughts.
I love doing this with Molly, I’ve been bringing her here since she was a baby. She really understands about growing stuff and is quite knowledgable about where her food comes from.
