Since early 2020 there has been a surge in demand for allotments. In November 2020 we obtained a grant under a Welsh Government scheme to create new or regenerate old allotments. The grant was awarded so that we could redevelop a neglected part of our site through the construction of twelve large raised beds or micro-plots. The beds are offered to new tenants in the first instance with the option of moving to a larger plot, if appropriate, when one becomes available. As a result we have been able to increase the number and variety of plots available to people on our waiting list.
Many thanks to Social Farms and Gardens who administered the grant on behalf of the Welsh Government.
