"For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations." - Isaiah 61:11
St Luke's Community Allotment Project was set up in 2009 to provide a relaxing and stress-free environment, where volunteers can enjoy the therapeutic, physical, and mental benefits of gardening. It is an opportunity for people to meet others and reduce feelings of isolation or exclusion. Everybody is welcome, no matter their gardening experience.
Our aim is to make food growing fun for everyone – especially those without access to a garden at home. It has also been fantastic for our volunteer workers who have met new people and felt a sense of accomplishment from growing their own food.
Since starting, St Luke's Allotment Community Project been awarded various awards for Community Spaces in Southend, including the Gold Certificate for Southend in Bloom's Best Community Space.
