Two months ago ASPIRE managed to secure an allotment. Currently each Saturday a team from ASPIRE and members of staff are there working hard to clear and prepare the ground ready for planting, and there is certainly a lot to do.
The team have big plans and are aiming to have a veg section, a herb garden, a salad section, a seating area and a corner where parents and children can get involved together with planting and growing.
The group have settled in well and the other allotment members have been fantastic, and many have been happy to help with advice and donations of plants and timber.
As you can see, despite all the hard work everyone has retained their sense of humour and are having a ball. Here the first bio-degradable item is placed in the composter!
