Giving children the chance to connect with nature has a wealth of benefits, from supporting their physical and mental wellbeing to understanding where the fruit and vegetables they eat come from. We became the proud residents of our Federation allotment plot, which is only a short walk from both nurseries, in September 2020. We started work immediately, clearing the ground, building raised beds, fencing, a pond and a bug hotel. We are now ready to fill our beds and start planting.
It's not just our children who benefit from the allotment. It's a great place for staff and parents too! If you would like to get involved, please get in touch with a member of staff.

Trip to Harvest Produce

The owners of our adjoining plot welcomed us to pick a harvest collection of vegetables.
We are now enrolling for September 2022 - Please get in touch to find out more and book a tour.
