Description

Root ‘n’ Fruit is a community food initiative in Middleport that links together schools, businesses and people from the community to help them learn about, grow, eat and cook fruit and vegetables.

The community allotment comprises 1,000sqm of total space. There are greenhouses, a large polytunnel, a classroom/summer house, raised beds including a disabled-access bed, a small pond, an architectural willow sculpture pergola, 3 composting bays, a “humanure” composting toilet with hand washing facilities and on-site car parking.

We are looking for volunteers to join us here at Root’n’Fruit, with no previous experience needed. We strive to keep the allotment producing to its full potential so that as much produce as possible can be given to the community where it is needed.  Whether you enjoy gardening, D.I.Y, cooking, event planning or even if you enjoy designing posters, we have a great project where you will be making a real difference to the local community.

Only registered members can apply for opportunities.
