About the Program: 

We are a community project set up to revitalise the village allotments and engage the community in growing vegetables, herbs, fruit, edible flowers and planting an orchard.

There are about 50 households in the village and 100 children attend the village school. 

We will be working with the village primary school and their cookery teacher to grow food the children can cook in school for their lunch. 

We would like the village community to be involved in planning, clearing, planting, tending, harvesting, cooking and eating their own produce at the harvest supper. This would be a real achievement.

We plan on making a communal area for gatherings with a bread oven.
