Tour of Cripley Meadow allotments
This tour of the Cripley Meadow Allotment site is generally used for new members and is our introduction to the site. It is applicable to anyone interested in seeing how a large allotment site works together to reduce food miles and grow vegetables, fruit and flowers whilst working sympathetically with the land and the seasons.
We have no piped water and use wells and harvest water from roofs. We have green waste plots where members can make use of compost made from grass cuttings and hedge trimmings and bring in leaf mould and wood chip from the locality so reducing the need for more lengthy travel. We now have two communal orchards comprising some 200 fruit trees.
