Active gardening

Active gardening is a free allotment programme available to people aged 16 years and over and is a great way to improve your physical and mental health.

Allotments provide a healthy outdoor activity with the satisfaction of taking exercise whilst planting and harvesting healthy, low cost, fresh and locally grown food. There are also additional benefits such as social interaction, making friends and being part of a supportive team. You will learn how to prepare the ground, what to grow seasonally and how to maintain the crops through the expertise of members of the group.
