St Lesmo Road Allotments back onto Stockport Academy in Edgeley
We are a friendly site in Edgeley. St Lesmo Road Allotment Association holds an annual bar-b-q in the Summer and a hotpot supper on Bonfire Night. Plotholders, family and friends join together for a great get-together.
We recycle leaves and horse manure to keep plots well nourished, and woodchippings to keep the paths from getting waterlogged in Winter. We also keep the trees well trimmed on the road outside the site.
Children from Cheadle Heath Primary School visit our site – they measure plots, identify vegetable plants, learn how to make compost and plant seeds to take home and grow. Plotholders give advice, donate vegetable seedlings for the school allotment beds, and visit the school to help plant them.
In 2015, plotholders were invited to the school for lunch – thank you for the delicious allotment soup and cheesecake. And some plotholders are donating plants and helping Stockport Academy to set up a Reflective Garden.
Contact Rick Garner 0161 282 1069 or firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name on the waiting list for a plot here.
