Story: Sarah Emberson

The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) are creating many community-based projects. They are now looking for volunteers to help at the Pitsmoor Scout Hut on Holtwood Road with a community garden with fruit trees and a space for growing food.

This garden will then be handed over to the community and the groups that use the Scout Hut kitchen will be able to use the organic vegetables. The first two work days at the Scout Hut were in March.

TCV have been running a community allotment at the High Wincobank allotments, off Windmill Lane. Our volunteers have greatly benefitted from the time spent outdoors and have been working together towards better mental and physical health. They have also had the opportunity to take home produce they have grown themselves. They are having an open day at the allotment on Friday 27th March, so why not come along and find out more?

You can make new friends and get some exercise. You can learn how to grow healthy fruit and vegetables and become involved in your local community.

The allotment group runs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Contact us and find out how you can begin volunteering on the allotment or at one of our other local projects.

It is thanks to funding from the Health Lottery and South Yorkshire Community Foundation that this TCV project can take place.
