Community Allotment Project

ACCEPT is a mental health charity and the project involves a plot of land in Leicestershire, which is very wild and overgrown, having not been used as an allotment for over 40 years.

The project will enable isolated adults, with long term mental health issues to clear and prepare the site together.

Ideas will be shared about how the site can be developed together to become a long term community project. We will explore how parts of the land can be used for growing fruit and vegetables alongside creating spaces for spiritual reflection and growth.
1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year and according to a MIND survey, 84% of people with mental health issues feel isolated. The project will enable those involved to benefit from peer support and friendship, alongside developing gardening and creative skills.
