Gardening for Health Allotment


Our award-winning allotment is situated in the heart of North Lynn and is in fact made up of 5 plots. It started as a large field of wild grass, stinging nettles and other weeds but has been transformed into a vibrant and viable piece of land.
 
Since its inception in 2007, many people have achieved great benefit as a result of this project. It has been especially good at developing a sense of purpose and meaning in people’s lives, increasing levels of physical activity, and creating opportunities for people to meet in a safe and enjoyable environment. The project has also enabled many people to acquire a range of new skills, seek new avenues for creative expression and intellectual and personal growth. On a more esoteric level service users and volunteers have suggested it has offered opportunity to foster a more spiritual connection with life.
 
Since taking root, the staff and team of volunteers have transformed a redundant piece of ground into a successful award-winning (B&Q One Planet Living Award winner 2008 and West Norfolk District Council Opportunities Award 2009) allotment project. Everybody involved has the chance to take part in the strategic planning and development of the project and can take responsibility for their own individual plot or help the group with the larger beds. Since starting the project, we have encouraged over 300 people to use and develop their own skills and abilities and this has helped it achieve award winning status.
