The allotments were re-established a number of years ago and have gone from strength to strength. As well as providing beautiful inexpensive homegrown fruit and vegetables, allotment gardening with Devenish Partnership Forum also provides health and well-being and social benefits. It creates the opportunity to make new friends and socialise with other residents who enjoy a similar rewarding pastime. Our current allotment holders tell us of the enormous satisfaction that they get by producing their own crops and how they get a sense of well-being by joining in the community days that we organize down in the allotments.
Recent work carried out has included improving the path and walkways around our allotment area and new raised beds have been put in place. The allotments are within our nature reserve site which offers wonderful walks throughout.
