We arrived at Lewes Community Allotment on a very beautiful morning greeted by the sunny smiles of Emma Chaplin, Project Manager of Flourish and Sarah Rideout, the Flourish Allotment Co-ordinator.
It was a terrific experience learning from a long established community allotment. They gave us detailed information and stories over hot cross buns with refreshing drinks as we sat under a shelter made on site from chestnut.
The location is breathtaking for it is on the edge of the South Downs next to sheep and stables. We were inspired and returned to PLOT 22 that afternoon feeling we had been somewhere special. Sharing the same mission of bringing the healing qualities of Mother Nature to the local community.
