A day at Willow Hey Community food growing project

The hidden allotment site that we began work on three weeks ago is now completely different to the overgrown jungle that we were faced with when our work first began, much of it largely down to the Princes Trust team who chose to work on our project as part of their overall capacity building programme which they are currently engaging in.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The young people on the site have cleared much of the Marsh grasses, bracken and other unwanted plants that had clogged the site up since it was last used way back in 2008, they have also managed to carve out the original walk ways between the beds and provided a covering for some of the pathways, and built a small seating area. Today was the last day that we had Princes Trust team helping us out on site, towards the end of today’s session the young people said a few lines about their thoughts and feelings of working on our project, all were good and all felt like they had learned new skills, overcome barriers, and got to know others on the project a little better, it was sad to see them leave, but no doubt we will see one or two of them again who have professed an interest in our project..OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We would like to thank all of the young people of Princes Trust for choosing to work on our project over others, and for all of the great work that you have carried out whilst you have been with us, and we wholeheartedly wish you all the very best for the future.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
