The Flourish Enterprises allotment project begins!
This Monday saw our team VERY hard at work in Conisbrough! It was day one of our Flourish Enterprises Doncaster project to develop a patchwork of allotment sites across Doncaster and the surrounding area.
Our aim is to:
Expand our range of volunteer programmes to get more people active, targeting those people that are isolated, lonely and who might benefit from meeting new people (when it is safe to do so of course);
Work with local and national partners to further raise awareness of the importance and benefits of maintaining a balanced, healthy diet and lifestyle;
Reduce our carbon footprint by using local sourced fresh produce in all of our cafes and event spaces; growing our own will mean we can significantly reduce down the cost we need to charge the community to access these services;
Directly support some of the great local food initiatives that already exist in Doncaster and the surrounding area by delivering quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables for free.
Thanks to our new friends at Conisbrough Allotment Society for making us feel so welcome, The Real Junk Food Project (TRJFP) and The Trussell Trust.
If you would like to find out more or get involved with this project, we’d love to hear from you, please give us a call on 01302 798000.
Now let’s get digging!
