RIVERSIDE COMMUNITY ALLOTMENT
The RCMA Community Allotment project engages with a very wide range of people. The Project manager provides support for volunteers at the site for two days per week, and more than 1100 people participated in our projects and activities during the last year!
The numbers of participants varies depending on the weather and time of year, but have averaged 8 – 10 people per session. We have a wide range of volunteers from all sorts of backgrounds and ages. Many of our volunteers are from hard-to-reach groups including asylum seekers, people who are unemployed, have learning difficulties or physical disabilities. Others are motivated by our environmental aims, transition issues or a general desire to learn to grow their own food.
