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
Learn some new gardening skills
Join in the friendly community spirit
Children can learn where food comes from - it doesn't just appear in bags in the supermarket!
Grow fresh, organic fruit and vegetables to eat
