The ‘Good Life’ in Woodley

jamessk6.com

There’s a real sense of community at the Braddon Road allotments in Woodley.  Plots are tended by men, women, couples and friends of all ages.  With a mix of newcomers and some who have been there for more than 20 years.  Elderberry trees and blackberries grow for jam and wine making, vegetables and flowers.  The flower growers attend shows and also sell their young flowers.  There’s even some cheeky badgers who come to visit and sample some of the produce!  Zoe who has a plot on the allotment says ‘Its really community spirited, the fellas helped me rotavate the plot after 6 years being untouched and put up some fencing for me.’
