We are delighted to have been given a large piece of lane on the Attenborough Lane allotment site, just 3 minutes walk from our Chilwell nursery.
This allow us to take small groups of children, of all ages to the site to get involved with growing vegetables 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 needed lots of hard work before we could begin sessions but we are constantly developing and improving the site.
