This is an allotment like no other!

In this multi-sensory installation, join a team of Creative Gardeners to help our paper allotment grow. We need your help to build a crop of 3D fruit and vegetables to bring the allotment to life. Amid the gentle smell of herbs, and the sound of birdsong, families are invited to let their imaginations bloom!

Spend some time tending to the paper plots; create and sculpt peas, rhubarb, carrots, leeks and potatoes, all from sustainable paper and cardboard. The Paper Allotment promotes the importance of recycling and caring for the environment. Gardening and growing food embraces being kind to the planet, to nature and to our own wellbeing through healthy eating and spending time outdoors.

This is a free drop-in, and everyone is welcome.
