Haydens Road Allotment

When Springbank community hub were allocated an allotment plot they knew it could change their provision of food at their pantry, but they needed help. Cheltenham is Growing agreed to share the plot with them, we will show them what to grow and how, they will let us use their fab polytunnel.

The site was fairly derelict however it became apparent that the previous tenant was a great gardener and huge potential lay underneath the mess.

With the help of lots of volunteers we have gradually brought the site back to life.  We use the polytunnel for starting off all seedlings, we have planted over 50 tomato plants in the polytunnel, the greenhouse and in an outside bed.  We have planted out kale, leeks, chard and more potatoes.

Our first crop of kale was delivered to Cheltenham Open door in June and we have delivered 4kg to date.
