Build your kids’ confidence – get them growing their own food

Low Moor Community Kids Allotment in Fishergate has a few vacancies for new members to kick off the 2020 season on Saturday 14th March.

Kids between the ages of 6 and 12 are invited down to weekly sessions where they are helped to “garden” the allotment – growing fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers.

It’s fun and rewarding, and hard work at times, but all the produce is shared out after harvesting and brought home where they can experiment with their cooking skills.

Located at the bottom of Kilburn Road, just near the allotment car park, the allotment is organised by volunteers and the sessions are staffed by them and parents, on a rota basis.

Sessions run weekly on Saturday mornings, 10am – 12 noon, between March and end of October. Members pay £1.00 per session.

This is an award-winning scheme, running for over 15 years. Your kids will gain a lot of skills out of it, along with new-found confidence, independence and much fun and friendships.

For more information, or to register your child’s interest, contact Angela Johnson.
