Since March this year, members of Disability Network Hounslow have been working on an allotment rented from Brentford and Isleworth Quakers. It includes a raised bed which can be tended by wheelchair users.
What started out as patches of couch grass and weeds have been transformed through hard work to productive plots. We have already harvested salads, radishes, peas, beans and potatoes, and have more crops coming on, including some promising tomatoes, squash and pumpkins, plus shallots, carrots and beetroot. The raised bed contains strawberries and herbs.
