Happy New Year! I hope it’s a good one for you all. We’re back from our break now and starting to get back into the swing of things.


We’re back at Nottingham Organic Gardener’s allotment this Saturday 8th January from 10am -1pm for the first of this year’s sessions at their Whitemoor allotment plot, Wilkinson Street, Whitemoor!

If you’re aged 16-25 and interested in learning how to grow your own fruit and vegetables by assisting a team of very passionate and experienced gardeners on their plot, then we’d love for you to join us. Please get in touch to let us know if you are coming so that we have an idea of the number of people to expect.

The fortnightly sessions are FREE and are planned for the following Saturdays from 10am-1pm (followed by a free lunch from 1-2pm):

  • 8th January;
  • 22nd January
  • 5th February
  • 18th February
  • 5th March

The sessions are designed to be very friendly and relaxed and are aimed at young people – whether you’re a newcomer to gardening or more experienced. It’s the perfect way to find out how to grow your own fruit and veg, whilst having fun and meeting like-minded people.

Every session includes a free meal too – made using ingredients grown at the allotment.  We can also reimburse travel expenses of 16-25 year olds if a public transport receipt is provided.

For further details or to book a place on any of the sessions please contact us to book your place: Call Rachel or Jabran on 0115 9708200 or e-mail: sproutnottingham@gmail.com
