LEAF (Local Enterprise Around Food) is a community allotment project based on 6 city council allotments adjacent to Northern General Hospital, about 2 miles from our sites. They provide opportunities for volunteers to support each other working communally on organic food-growing. They also link with local schools and have piloted work in residential homes. Our partnership is via informal links, including:

  • Supporting members to progress to this more independent volunteering.
  • Sharing tips on organic food growing.
  • Mutual referring of volunteers.
  • Pooling resources to share training and networking opportunities.

LEAF runs regular volunteer sessions:

Wednesday 1.00pm 6.00pm
Thursday 10.00am 1.00pm
Saturday 10.00am 6.00pm
