A community allotment based growing space which brings together young and old, teaching organic principles and sharing good, local produce among growers and the wider community. Poly-tunnel and raised beds for wheelchair accessible gardening. High Spen Community Association helps to oversee and run this project via an elected committee. The garden is run as a social enterprise company, which means any profit we make is put back into the local community and keeping the garden running through buying seeds, plants, equipment and training volunteers. We run community events throughout the year, such as a Christmas fayre, summer open day and pumpkin carving.
