MCFly 43 – Scott Avenue allotments

Great Scott!

Scott Avenue Allotment in Chorlton has fifty individual plots, including a new ‘Grow For It’ community plot. There are basic facilities on site: a portaloo, garage, and decrepit shed, which functions as the site’s only indoor social space.

Two students from the Manchester School of Architecture have helped to run two workshops with the plot-holders and steering group. Everyone was encouraged to air their views on what the new space should offer, how it could look, and who it would engage with. It was unanimously agreed that the new build would not only act as a social hub for all users of the allotment, but as a facilitator for greater engagement with the local community.

If you live nearby, why not get down and dirty on the community plot every Saturday from 11am, or Sunday from 2pm? Or, if you prefer a cleaner option, email grow_for_it@yahoogroups.co.uk or call Loucas on 07973139068 with any questions, advice, comments or funding leads.

    Try and keep it as secure as you can, we've had a few vandalised in certain areas of the country. Good Luck

    You’re correct Bogman, we’ve been asked by a number of allotments to supply small shipping containers so portable toilets can go inside for security reasons.
