OUR COMMUNITY ALLOTMENT 

Located in the vibrant heart of Walker, the Ngage Community Allotment offers a serene communal space for neurodiverse individuals to reconnect with nature and each other. Born from a shared vision to cultivate a green sanctuary within the urban environment, our allotment promotes mental and physical well-being through hands-on gardening and various outdoor activities. This welcoming space encourages growth and fosters a strong sense of community.

Wednesday Social Sessions

Join us every Wednesday afternoon from 1PM at our allotment for a vibrant social session. We offer a range of engaging activities including gardening, arts and crafts, giant bubble therapy, and various other enjoyable social events. On the first Wednesday of each month, we gather at 12 noon for a delightful picnic or BBQ. If you would like to attend one of our social sessions please get in touch.

While our activities are primarily designed for neurodiverse individuals in supported accommodation, we are proud to collaborate with Nudge Education. Through this partnership, we've allocated two plots specifically for the children supported by Nudge Education, allowing them to experience and benefit from the allotment’s enriching environment.
