A project managed by Learning Disability Day Services takes place at their allotment in Barry. A capital grant has funded an accessible, wheelchair friendly path, a pergola, a bird bath, mini greenhouse and various tools and safety equipment.
“The allotment provides a great outdoor environment for service users and was ideally placed to continue through the pandemic. Courgettes, carrots, potatoes, kale and tomatoes were grown this year, which we gave to people working on the allotment and used in cookery classes within the day service.”
