The relaxation of Covid rules has meant that our volunteers and young people are now back on the allotment. Sadly, in the last year, we have also lost some older members of our group, we are now in the process of creating a small memorial garden in our allotment with a bench, wildflowers, and roses.

We have had a delayed start to the year with the frost lasting a lot longer into the early months of the growing season.


The mural painted by one of our volunteers on the side of the container is almost complete and we are looking forward to inviting Salford’s Mayor to come and see his handy work and have a grand reveal of it.

The ‘Green Room’, our purpose-built brassica growing cage is having a revamp with smaller, raised beds and a potting table currently being installed to ensure it meets the rise in demand for people less able to use low-setting beds.


Our Allotment coordinator has been working with the volunteers and Greater Manchester Youth Network who supports young people in care settings on the fruit and vegetable beds, started working with individuals (both younger and older) on the Nature Bed. New native plants, a giant bug hotel (built by our volunteers and filled by the children) and a solar-powered water feature are being put in, along with a solar water feature on our existing mini pond, we will also be nurturing a small cherry tree to feed the local wildlife.




This year, our goal will be to enter the crop we grow into a local horticultural show and we will be aiming for the top 3!
