Have you considered becoming an allotment plot holder?
Allotments are in high demand across the City as more people recognise the benefits they can bring. An allotment plot would provide you with a space to connect with your community and get fresh produce straight to your dinner table.
Where is the new growing space?
Growchapel is a community led growing space situated around the football pitch between Halgreen Avenue and Abbotshall Avenue, G15.
What size is the site?
The site is approx. 6000m2 and will feature a number of allotment plots, a sensory Sitooterie space, orchard area and outdoor learning and social spaces. The site will be developed in two phases, the first has already begun and should be complete by mid-end July 2021.
In phase one the site will contain:
- 22 ground plots, ranging from 150m2 – 75m2
- A composting toilet
- A Scented Sitooterie space to sit and relax
- Beehives to help the species grow
Pockets of wetland areas, adjacent to the plots, to increase biodiversity
