A Reading GrowAllot project from Food 4 Families, in partnership with the Big Lottery.
Local families have transformed a piece of derelict land at Florian Gardens, Southcote into a thriving allotment growing fresh, healthy fruit and vegetables.
One in four residents here live in flats with no garden to enjoy.
Southcote GrowAllot gives them the chance to start growing food together.
Join us. We grow our own vegetables, keep fit and have fun.
Come along to a session at the allotment and learn all about growing!
Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.
The garden is open at the following times:
Thursdays from 10:30am to 12noon
Saturdays from 10am to 1pm
If you would to find out more information or book a session please email email@example.com.
