Free allotment sessions in Beeston Hill

The environmental charity, Groundwork, is holding social allotment sessions in the hopes of helping out people who need help readjusting to a post-covid world, one step at a time.

Do you pay council tax to Leeds City Council? Do you enjoy gardening? Have you ever wanted to learn how to grow your own fruit and veg? Well this might just be for you.

Held at Lady Pit Lane Allotments on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10am until 3pm, the allotment project offers residents a range of activities for you to get involved in, from growing fruit and veg to other activities such as arts and crafts, skills workshops, old furniture repairs and many more. We also use our sessions to maintain the allotment. The project leader aims to make every session fun and engaging and is accompanied by helpers who are just as eager to get stuck in and help out.

Towards the winter period, the weather will undoubtedly turn cold and miserable as it usually does, so we will be more likely to use our indoor facilities for activities. These will vary from arts and crafts, right through to furniture repair. We will vary the activities from week to week.

The aim of the sessions is to help those who require it, from people with learning difficulties, to those who want to readjust to post-covid society at their own pace. With tea being served all you must bring is lunch for yourself, all tools and equipment are supplied for you!
