Getting stuck in at Terrace Road allotment, Walton-on-Thames
2017 - August, News and events
On Saturday 19th August the Resident Involvement team, Walton Charity and Elmbridge residents spent the afternoon at Terrace Road Allotment. They were there to celebrate National Allotments Week and to learn a bit more about the project.
The space is incredibly relaxing and stimulating with lots of things to do whatever your interests. From planting seeds, digging and making bug hotels to painting reclaimed chairs, weeding or picking fruit and veg, there’s something to suit everyone.
Currently beetroot, blueberries and radishes are ready for harvesting whilst cherry trees, pumpkins and corn have been planted and are growing fast.
Many local groups have got involved and supported the project. The list below is just a few:
- the sunflowers were planted by year three children at Grovelands Primary School: https://www.grovelands.surrey.sch.uk/galleries
- the carved sign was made with help from artist Ruth Wheeler: http://www.sculptit.co.uk/about-us/ruth-wheeler/
- the fencing and chairs were made by Men in Sheds:https://www.surreyinformationpoint.org.uk/Services/3522/Men-in-Sheds-Elmbrid
- the bicycle wheels were donated by The Surrey Bike Project https://en-gb.facebook.com/Bike-Project-Surrey-292987184121817/and East St Cycles (Walton)
