With the support of the church community, and funding and practical help from Edible York, Planet South Bank and other local people have created a great growing space at the pointy bit of the site (The Nose). During the first year, 2011, dozens of people helped dig new beds, clear out old rose bushes and plant new fruit bushes - and then eat the produce.
During the growing season, Planet South Bank have regular gardening times, on the 1st and 3rd Sunday afternoon of the month, from 2-4pm.
We're often there for longer, and sessions often involve much more chatting-over-the-railings than digging. All are welcome; come to help dig or drop in to harvest at any time. It's an open site, although if you want to plant stuff, let us know otherwise we might just dig it up again by accident!
At a time when local allotment space is over-subscribed, when access to fresh fruit and veg is ever more highly-valued, and in an area with few gardens and only tiny backyards, this is your opportunity to grow and eat local organic food!
