Plot to Plate.
Disability Direct – Plot to PlateRun by the charity, Disability Direct.
Plot to Plate is a fully accessible allotment open to disabled and elderly people that want to enjoy the benefits of gardening in a safe, accessible, supported environment.
Overall the plot really is a great place to learn new skills and make new friends. So if you are disabled or an older person who can’t manage an allotment on your own or if you want to volunteer to support this project, please get it touch. We’d love to have you.
As well as the regular plot days we also hold plot related activities for older people and disabled people from the community. This allows us to get many more people involved and gives them the chance to learn something new whilst making friends and enjoying the allotment. Past activities have seen people build bird boxes, bee hotels and pumpkin lanterns.
The Plot opened to the public in April 2017 and welcomed it first disabled and older members who took no time in getting seedlings planted and beds ready for planting.
