OUR ALLOTMENT

ÁR LEITHROINNT

Irish Community Care Manchester's allotment project is based on the community allotments at Tonbridge Road in Levenshulme. The project was established in 2015 and is aimed at over 50’s. The goal of the project is to reduce social isolation, to give an opportunity for volunteers to get fresh air and exercise, as well as to have a positive impact on mental health. The facilities on the allotment include a tool shed, poly tunnel, and ample space to grow fruit and vegetables.

 

The project originated from a Breakfast Club that we held at at St. Mary’s parish centre, Levenshulme. Clients suggested that they would enjoy the challenge of maintaining an allotment and growing fresh fruit and vegetables. Since then the we have developed our allotment and it houses a large, well-equipped meeting shed with cooking facilities.

Our allotment project has been serving the community since 2015. Here Patrick, who volunteers on the allotment and Zhara who co-ordinates the project tell us more.
