We enjoy a variety of activities, including gardening, cooking, bushcraft skills, scarecrow-making and gnome painting! We learn practical horticultural skills, as well as all about food growing and healthy eating. The produce we grow is used to make lots of delicious things which we make and cook down the allotment such as, fruit jams, courgette chutney, onion soup, courgette fritters, onion bahjis, sag aloo, salads and vegetable hotpots, kebabs and stir fries, as well as baked potatoes and barbequed sweetcorn.
Coming to the allotment gives me a great feeling of calm. During lockdown I came here a lot. I bought a packed lunch and a book and spent many hours enjoying the peace and beauty of the place.

In 2018 we were delighted to receive the Gold Award in the Wildlife Friendly Garden Awards. Harrogate District Biodiversity Action Group’s award scheme recognises the good work of individuals, groups and schools to help local wildlife by creating havens for bird and insect populations to flourish.
