Milton Court's Community Garden and Allotment: the vision
Milton Court has been serving this community for over 170 years.
We go beyond simply delivering great education. This was the driving force behind our vision of the community garden and allotment.
In 2020 the school embarked on converting an unused piece of land on the school site into a peaceful garden and allotment for all members of the community to enjoy.
The aim of community gardens and allotments is simple: facilitate people from within the community to come together, develop together and connect with nature.
What makes this project truly special is that it is built by the community, for the community.
Here is a list of the local partners that have contributed thus far:
· Laser Mechanical & Electrical Ltd
· Martin Robinson Carpentry
· Roe Brickwork
· EJ Roberts
· Swale Children’s Centre
· Earth Craft UK
· Eco Shed
