A good year for YMCA DLG allotment

2014 has been a great year for the YMCA DownsLink Group allotment in Hove. This time last year our allotment was in need of some TLC and with the help of our young people and some wonderful volunteers it has been turned into a great space.

Our volunteers cleared the old pond and created a new one. With the help from Lloyds bank staff, who were there on their corporate team building day, we also created a wildlife area around the ponds.

We worked on improving our poly tunnel by installing a front door and our young people built a bench inside made from old pallets. So soon we can start potting under a shelter.

Last year we had a great harvest of strawberries, garlic, onions and potatoes, as well as courgettes and squash. Our young people really appreciated how great it is to eat fruit and vegetables that they have grown themselves.
