Great Taste in a Little Space
Many older people, when they give up their family homes, have to give up their gardens. This can represent a loss of their favourite hobby. At Urban Allotments, we believe that you can keep growing whatever space you have available, and whatever mobility you have. There is always a way! Our talk is to help older people understand that they can still enjoy growing their own fruit and veg even it is on a smaller scale outdoors or a fragrant windowsill with culinary herbs. If desired we can offer a 'potting party' where residents get to pot up their chosen herbs, strawberries or veg plants to grow on back in their accommodation. Our talks are often the beginning of a longer relationship with the scheme, and have typically led to a gardening club being formed with our help and the growers sharing their produce with the rest of the scheme. The picture shows a similar talk at the Brighton Centre earlier this year. References from schemes we are working with are available.
