Southcote GrowAllot ~ Community Allotment Open Sessions

Contact group directly to check when running.

Southcote  GrowAllot is a  thriving community allotment growing fresh, healthy fruit and vegetables with local residents of all ages. Local families have transformed a piece of derelict land at Florian Gardens, just off Coronation Square so everyone can have 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.
