Growing together

a community project for everyone from

Are you a green-fingered local keen to catch some sunshine and grow some fruit and veg this summer? How about bringing the children or grandchildren along to the allotment for some fresh air and an interesting day out? Bring a picnic along or take those juicy strawberries home for tea time.

Perhaps you have some free time on your hands – on holiday or in between jobs. Perhaps you’re just looking for something new and fun to do in the local community. Get in touch to find out more about taking on a plot.

Everyone is welcome

The allotment project is also a useful aid for New Highway’s recovery programmes. And, little by little, the plot is being transformed into a vibrant, therapeutic place, a place that can help people on their journey to recovery.

We have an open door policy for people in recovery and also welcome other members or groups in the community who want to rent a plot or help in any way.

There is a strict policy of no drugs or alcohol on the site and there are mentors around who can offer advice and support.
