On the 5th December, Grow Together Bucks CIC will open its community allotment gates to welcome you all to their celebratory open day. Having started up during the Covid pandemic in 2020, Grow Together have established not only a therapeutic community allotment but also coordinated Urban Harvest and Grow To Give schemes.
‘It is intended as a thank you for all our helpers, and we would also like to invite others who might be interested in volunteering in the future.’
Richard Andrews, Director and Compost enthusiast shared.
The 250m2 community allotment plot at Back Lane Allotments (accessed from Sierra Rd) was acquired in April 2020. The Community gardeners all bring different skills to the project, helping with horticultural and DIY tasks as diverse as: sourcing materials, planting, weeding, repairs and improvements, hard landscaping. There is something from everyone to come and embrace some social and therapeutic horticulture , no matter their experience or ability.
To be ready for next season, they have just built a new shed and we plan to construct a patio near the river edge, they have built more efficient compost heaps and will construct a potting area under cover. They grow flowers and vegetables as well as always learning new things together. Any spare produce they deliver to One Can Trust for others to appreciate.

The event will run 11am- 3pm at Back Lane/ Sierra Road Allotments, High Wycombe, HP11 1GY.
Feel free to pop along during this time, come speak to the team of volunteers and find out about the sessions run during the week.
