Growing Health Lunch Club Appeal

We're currently raising funds for equipment for our new Growing Health Lunch Club, which will allow members to learn about healthy eating and actually prepare and cook their own food at the Pavilion. Until recently the only cooking facility was a microwave and we could only do food preparation demonstrations, but once we add induction hobs and appropriate cookware to the Pavilion's resources, we will be able to get everyone actively participating. This equipment will benefit all our other projects too. We are very grateful to CDA Herts and St Marks Church Hitchin for supporting this appeal.

Growing Ability Polytunnel and Raised Beds Appeal

We are currently raising funds to site a polytunnel on our secondary allotment, so we can extend our growing season and provide activities for our learning disabled gardeners when the weather is bad. We are also creating raised beds on this allotment for people with mobility issues, and are keen to get hold of a compost wormery and large water butt. We are very grateful to Hitchin Santander and Affinity Water for supporting this appeal.

Growing Ability Toolshed/Shelter Appeal

This appeal is for an open fronted shelter for our main allotment which will benefit our Growing Ability projects in the following ways:

  • it will create a sheltered area for all-weather outdoor activity, so rain needn't prevent us from doing our therapeutic activities
  • it will help to keep dry the equipment we currently can't fit into allotment our lock-upĀ 
  • it will make the area under the lime trees more usuable, as it will catch the aphid dew before it makes everything under there all sticky

Thank you to all those who have supported this appeal.
