Our clients and followers are our biggest supporters and advocates, so I wanted to share their words:
Since gaining a small allotment at ‘Life at No.27’ my mental health and general well being has never been so good. The opportunity to work with a piece of land and turn it into a sustainable food source has been fantastic. I have planted and sowed seeds and week by week watched them turn into a full meal for my family and I. It has given me headspace and perspective which no medication could and I am so grateful for this. To have this taken away undoes all the work many of us have put in to come this far not only on our allotments but also our mental health. I sincerely hope we find somewhere soon so that we are able to rebuild what we started.Anonymous, Life at No.27 allotment holder.

A massive well done for all your hard work and your determination to make things happen. You’re so brave!
Happy sowing and growing!”
