Event date: 01/04/2011 00:00 - 01/08/2025 00:00 Export event 11 August 2015 / Categories: Healthy City Fit To Grow The Fit To Grow project in Currock began in April 2011 when the City Council and Riverside Housing Association, with the help of funding from the Healthy City initiative, began transforming an overgrown and derelict allotment into a productive vegetable garden. The first growing session proved a notable success. Some magnificent vegetables were grown and eaten. Novice gardeners are now ready to take on larger plots. This will free up space for any newcomers - individuals, community groups or more schools – who it is hoped will come in. See a selection of photos from the Fit to Grow project on Flickr. Anyone interested in getting involved, as gardeners or mentors, should contact the Neighbourhoods and Green spaces team at Carlisle City Council on 01228 817453 Print 1707 Rate this article: No rating Please login or register to post comments.
