Include Me 2 Club Allotment Angels
Allotment Angel's project is based in Dennistoun in the East End of Glasgow. It is completely volunteer led and made up of members from the Includeme2 club where some have additional support needs and disabilities. There are also residents from local sheltered housing, and local nurseries and groups join too. The group took over an unused, overgrown plot in 2018 and has transformed it into a lush country garden with sensory pathways. The group also has an allotment where members grow over 70 types of vegetables and herbs. New raised beds were built using donated scaffold boards. Members not only gain new skills in gardening and growing their own vegetables, but also learn the art of upcycling and recycling and are given new confidence to make friends and social skills.
