Our new allotment
We are delighted to have been given a large piece of lane on the Attenborough Lane allotment site, just 3 miniutes walk from our Chilwell nursery.
This will allow us to take small groups of children, of all ages to the site to get involved with growing vegatables and flowers together with getting up and close with nature. We also plan to run Forest school sessions here too as well as at our woods.
As you can see by the photographs the site is going to need lot of hard work before we can begin sessions but keep watching this space and you will be able to see the site develop over the coming months.

June/July 2019: Our Chilwell children get to work, digging over the soil and planting pumpkin plants which they have grown from seed at nursery.
