Charity allotment to help homeless

The allotment will be laid down to basic foods

The UK based charity Fareshare is to tackle poverty in Cardiff with an allotment scheme.

Fareshare is committed to the redistribution of food and the new scheme is no exception, aiming to save local charities from having to purchase vegetables.

Each weekend a team of volunteers meet to work the land with the aim of growing wholesome roast dinner food and organisers Elizabeth Dissley and Katie Nezitt are currently turning the ground of the long unused allotment.

“It’s like a green gym,” said Elizabeth, “it’s a lot harder than you think it’s going to be.”

The ground is to be left over the winter while the plans are drawn up and they’ll be needing as many green-fingered volunteers as they can get for this promising venture.
