We are based at Hodge House Allotments in Nelson, Lancashire and we improve the health and wellbeing of individuals who may be isolated, inactive or have mild to moderate mental health issues.
🦆I think the saying 'nice weather for ducks' sums up today's weather ☔. But despite the downpours we managed to get things done. The hotbeds are almost filled and we have been replacing the old woodchip in the polytunnel 😀🦆☔🦆#healthandwellbeing... See MoreSee Less
Accrington & Rossendale College students spent the morning helping us to finish manuring the polytunnel beds, sowing salad leave seeds and filling pots ready for planting. They did a great job! 👩🌾👨🌾👍 ... See MoreSee Less
👨🌾🌱👩🌾A busy day pricking out some onion seedlings. We have grown a couple of varieties, one of these being Mammoth Onions, we will let you know how big they get. Our geranium seedlings that we sowed at the beginning of January were also pricked out. 🌨❄🌱🌱 #healthandwellbeing#gyoforwellbeing... See MoreSee Less
It is slowly starting to feel like spring is just round the corner and it is staying light till just after 5pm 😀 We are starting to see flowers popping up, so this brings us nicely to 'flower of the week', which is the Snowdrop. The Galanthus, or Snowdrop is a pretty flower which starts to appear in January. For many of us it is a taste of what flowers are to come over the next few weeks. Snowdrops do not establish well from dry bulbs, so you are best buying and planting them when they are in the green. Or divide a clump, once they have finished flowering 🌱🥀🌷 #gyoforwellbeing...
