Allotment

Green Team Dudley have a fantastic allotment located at Abbey Road, Colley Gate which is fully equiped to  enable our customers to enjoy keeping fit planting, cultivating and harvesting a variety of fruits and vegetables.The allotment has a large poly tunnel, four large raised planting beds, two permanent picnic tables and has been covered  by a level membrane and an even layer of bark chippings its simply just fab!  Our Team receive fantastic advice and education from friendly experienced gardeners from the Abbey Road allotment association  who are always welcoming. Team members produce crops which can be taken home where we encourage members to use them to cook healthy meals. Green Team also grow plants from seeds and cuttings for our other fantastic partner the Dudley Canal Trust. These plants are then displayed at the main Dudley Canal Trust trips site located at Todds End which is behind the Black Country Museum off the Birmingham New Road, Dudley.It is great to see the Teams hard work and skills shown off to such a large amount of tourists many of whom take the time to compliment our Team members. Our Allotment allows team members to keep fit, get educated in cultivation , learn about healthy eating ingredients, be an inclusive part of an established community resource,have fun , make new friends or just relax listening to the birds singing while taking in the beautiful uninterrupted views over countryside to the Clent Hills. Basically the allotment is bostin! Green Team Dudley would like to pass on a huge thank you to Mick Pountney who is the chairperson of the Abbey Road Allotment association and the Cradley Gardening Club. Mick’s enthusiasm for making gardening accessible to disabled people has been truly inspirational with him securing the grant which has made our allotment possible and for the many hours of work preparing the allotment so Green Team could move in and start planting. Mick has made each of our members so welcome and has helped us every step of the way and is always available to give us  advice.Mick has also introduced other gardeners like Dot and Ken who are also valuable teachers when we need support. Green Team look forward to a long and fruitful membership of the Abbey Road Allotment Association.
