Since the summer of 2012 local residents have got together to transform a piece of abandoned land in the centre of Whitley. Now there is a community allotment, supported by Food4families, in partnership with Trees for Cities where local people grow their own fruit and vegetables and share their produce.

Come along and get involved. It's good fun, you make new friends, do gentle exercise, get fresh fruit and vegetables to take home and its just round the corner.
The allotment is open every Sunday 2 to 4pm
And every Wednesday 3 to 6pm
These sessions are free and everyone is welcome All equipment/resources are provided as well as light refreshments, you just need to come in sturdy shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
All the fruit and vegetables at the allotment are grown communally and then shared out at harvest time between everyone who has helped grow it. At the open sessions a Food4families tutor is there to provide some support if needed though if you are very confident you can become a member and go along in your time too.
Adults with additional needs - physical or mental can attend a session on Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 3pm. Please book in for these sessions.
Regular Planning meetings. Perhaps you'd like to help with the organisation? The planning meetings are held on the last Sunday of the month in the garden. This Community allotment is supported by Food4families but aims to be managed by the local community.

You can find us here: Meavy Gardens, Reading RG2 7RD
