Helping communities to grow their own fruit, veg & flowers
The Lottery Funded ‘Open Space‘ project began in March 2011 at Lostock College. It transformed a derelict site on school grounds into a thriving veg gardening and wildlife habitat. In Autumn 2012 the site became a community allotment for locals and the school to enjoy.
Local volunteers clearing the space in March
Two months on…bean poles and raised beds!
Nicola was at the school once a week to develop and maintain the site, run lunchtime and afterschool gardening clubs for students and staff, plus organise volunteer days open to staff, students and the local community.
