Environmental charity Stroud Valleys Project has taken over an allotment on Bisley Old Road.

“We have a very overgrown plot that will need lots of work over the coming weeks,” said Clare Mahdiyone, SVP Director of Projects. “We plan to use the land for several of our projects, including our Green Team, as our volunteers have told us they want to learn how to grow their own vegetables.

“Also, the Get Growing project, which New Allotment June11is working with 20 schools across the district, will use the allotment to grow vegetable seedlings for next year. Over the winter we will be able to buy trees and hedge plants and heal them in until we are ready to plant them.

“I am looking forward to seeing all the changes and hope by this time next year we will have a shed and a pond.”

So far the volunteers have found eight slow worms, and re-housed them, and lots of different kinds of bumblebees and solitary bees.
