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.

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.

You guessed it, gardening and tea and cake but what other special things can we do? Would you like poetry, painting or … are you a secret ukelele master and want to teach us a few basic grips?
