Transition & Permaculture Hull has longstanding links with Constable St Field. We held vegetable growing sessions with children for a few years before the setting up of Friends of Constable St Field, a community organisation which is developing the field for community use. The orchard in the northern corner was planted in 2014. Grant funding from Health Lottery ‘Peoples Health Trust’ and Hull CCG ‘Creating a Healthier Hull’ has been used for the creation of Constable Community Allotment at the south-west corner of the field. This is a secure growing area which is being developed with flat beds, raised beds and polytunnels. The first growing season was 2016.
Volunteer Sessions at Constable Community Allotment (weather permitting) are held regularly from 12 noon on Saturdays plus at other times during the week. Contact Lausanne for more information on 07816 141169.
