Downham Nutrition Partnership Registered charity 1100040  Company Number 04810528

Working in partnership to enable local residents and organisations work together towards a Healthy Downham

The allotments at Kendale Road have been present since the Downham Estate was built. What was once a flourishing allotment site had less interest from local residents in more recent years.

 

Lewisham Borough Council kindly allowed Downham Nutrition Partnership to develop the site; clearing the overgrowth and starting plots for the local community to grow vegetables.

 

Over the last 5 years we have had close contact with a number of schools, home educating families, patients from a local GP surgery, and the local community. Some people have taken on their own plots, while others have contributed to the community plots.

There are a number of benefits of coming to the allotments:

 

It is peaceful - many people comment on how quiet it is at the site. It is a great place to relax and de-stress

 

Getting active
