We are pleased to confirm RIVER NETWORK are pioneering a new Therapeutic Community Allotment. A really impressive amazing plot of land. With a summer house, insect hotel, four raised growing beds and as many herb gardens, with an apple tree and orchard.
One of Derbyshires leading and growing Charities are continuing to pioneer a new project and continuing to grow! Pun intended.
CEO Terry Eckersley enthuses “ it’s such a joy to continue to build strategic partnerships that are really helping individuals find a sense of community, purpose and achieving all within the wider Derbyshire strategy.”
In partnership with The Rufford Close Allotments in Chesterfield. They have already prepared and filled one of the raised beds with Carrots, Lettuce, Spring Onions, and Coloured Beetroot. They have another for raised beds to prepare, plant, water and grow.
Many people also feel lonely and isolated so this Community project will help bring community and cohesion. We can then also seek to build with the community.
