The Communal Allotment Project


The Communal allotment project was developed by the allotments secretary Daniel Barrington in partnership with Liverpool City Council and the Liverpool Primary Care Trust.

The Communal Allotment will provide access to allotments for people with disabilities, local community groups and schools.

Special thanks go to George Holmes for his hard work and dedication to the project.

In September 2007 we replaced the prefabricated building with a new meeting room and classroom
The plot was cleared of all rubbish and the level was raised using over 400 tonnes of hardcore
In March 2008 fencing was erected around the plot and raised beds were built by the Green Apprentices
The polytunnel was erected by George Holmes and Jeff Frost in April 2008
Planting has now started on the Communal Allotment
Once again thanks goes to George Holmes for planting the bedding plants
Pathways were created by the Green Apprentices in June 2008
The final area to be developed. In August 2008 George Holmes laid a pathway from the raised bed area to the polytunnel
Raised beds were built by George Holmes
