What is Dig In?
Dig In Community Allotment
|Albany allotments, Pasture Road, Stapleford, Nottingham. NG9 8HZ Tel: 07943 700302 email: email@example.com web: www.diginstapleford.org.uk blog: www.digincommunityallotment.blogspot.co.uk Facebook & Twitter|
Dig In Community allotment is located on the Albany allotments site, Pasture Road in Stapleford. It’s a 3-plot allotment with a lot of growing space with regular ground level beds and raised beds for those who find it difficult to get to the ground. There’s a polytunnel which provides a sheltered area for more tender plants and is great for us to shelter in when its raining! There’s a mini-orchard with various fruit trees and a wildlife pond with decking area. A permanent herb bed attracts many bees and other insects.
We try to encourage wildlife by not using chemicals and having flowers growing in some areas.
All tools, seeds and everything else needed to get gardening are provided, all you need is to dress according to the weather conditions and wear appropriate footwear. Its free, friendly, and you share in the day’s harvest to take home with you.
We have a composting loo with a ramp to make it accessible to all.
Why not come along and give it a try?
Open to all on Wednesdays & Saturdays, 10am-12noon, just ring the bell on the gate.
