Where Are We?

Mill Lane Allotments

We have our own community plot at Mill Lane Allotments (CH5 4HF) where we grow lots of vegetables and herbs from seed, while encouraging wildlife, insects and bees. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to help maintain the Community Garden which is next to our allotment plot.

We also maintain the local planters on Shotton High Street on behalf of Flintshire County Council. This is a beautiful area of green space, and will encourage more local people to join our community social gardening project and use the area during the day.

Hwb Cyfle

Through the winter months November to February, the group teams up with national charity Home Farm Trust (HFT) and helps to maintain their outdoor spaces around their Flintshire building Hwb Cyfle.

This also provides an opportunity for us to deliver more craft and workshop sessions out of season.
