One Sunday a month, the PLOT 22 garden allotment opens its gate to host Garden Sundays, welcoming gardeners, enthusiasts, and novices of all ages to connect with the land and share a communal lunch made from the allotment’s produce.
In this piece, we are invited to hear from Harriett who describes the allotment as the seasons pass, its impact on her, and how PLOT 22 can be a model for living.
Every Friday, individuals who wish to connect with the land and garden communally are invited to attend PLOT 22’s Garden Fridays.
In this intimate programme we meet three people who regularly attend the sessions and hear what drew them to the allotment. In understanding their relationship with the land we learn about the remarkable transformation it has had on their lives.
