Grow Allot is an exciting initiative created by the College to restore an area of disused ground at its Kings Road site into an allotment style, community garden.
The project aims to make gardening fun and accessible to individuals of all ages and abilities. It’s a great opportunity to improve health through physical activity and incorporate more fresh fruit and vegetables into our daily diet.
A community garden is so much more than an aesthetically pleasing feature - it brings a neighbourhood together. Students, staff and the local community are given a solid foundation and a connection to the earth through gardening, and everyone involved can be happy with what they are eating.
The College has to date worked with over 500 individuals during the project’s short life. Overall it aims to have imbedded the community garden into all areas of the College.
