Open Day at the Community Allotment. The scarecrow keeps an eye on proceedings.
For those who may not have encountered this project previously in my portfolio – about ten years ago a group of volunteers raised £60,000 to adapt three adjoining allotment plots for use by people who would not normally be able to manage an allotment or garden – the very elderly, the physically disabled, adults and young people with learning difficulties and severe psychiatric problems.
There are raised beds and small plots, everything is wheelchair-accessible. Able-bodied members work along with the disabled members to give support and guidance. It's an amazing place.
This was always going to be b&w, because the colour original has a major problem (a clump of dazzling nasturtiums bang in the middle). But I have now produced a nasturtium-free colour version which will go up some time. Don't get me wrong, they're one of my favourite flowers (and wonderful in salads). But they're very bright...
Thanks for looking,
