Southend in Transition Community Allotment
(entrance to allotments off Hamstel Road – Garon’s end – opposite fish and chips Plaice to Be)

Where you can learn how to grow food, look after your garden, take fresh produce home, meet new people over a shared meal and exchange ideas on how to help the community thrive.

Taster Days – Volunteers and public welcome

Sun 23/07 10-14

Gardening and a bit more of citizen science – the Big Bug Hunt – spot them and record them and Earthworm Watch – lets find out the health of our soil and its inhabitants.
