Our allotment

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.

May 2019: Our neglected allotment

June 2019: Work starts on clearing the site

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.


October 2019: Our first crop of pumpkins. Some went to nursery others we took in our cart to Landermeads care home for the children to carve with the care home residents.
September 2020:
Due to lock down we have been unable to take children to the allotment, however we have still been planting various crops ready for their return. Over the past few weeks we have been on trips down there is pick courgettes, beans and carrots and to dig up potatoes and onions.
