VISITING OUR ALLOTMENT IN HANLEY SWAN

We have an allotment in the village and go there regularly to  explore Nature, search for minibeasts  and learn about gardening and growing produce. 

We have grown lots of vegetables over the  years and have enjoyed  growing peas, runner beans, onions, potatoes, courgettes, pumpkins, squashes and various herbs.

We have harvested some beautiful pumpkins and had a raffle for them, raising some more funds ready for buying seeds for next year!


We have benefitted so much from some brilliant help with weeding, strimming,digging and watering.  Please join in and help to make our allotment an even greater success!

Take a look at our photos and see what we have been up to!
