We are excited to be partnering with University of Cumbria’s Back On Our Map (BOOM) South Cumbria Species Restoration Project, working with University of Cumbria, species specialists and volunteers, to sow, propagate and plant out key species in South Cumbria. The project will launch at the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space in early 2020, part of Art Gene’s Re-wilding Barrow project with Landscape Working Party. Read more about Art Gene’s Allotment Soup project and the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space.

Allotment Soup Work Days
Join our community of gardeners on the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space and work with Landscape Engagement Coordinator Eve Mulholland to learn about resilience, growing your own food and sustainable living. Work days often include communal maintenance of the growing areas, and are a chance to meet up with other growers. No experience necessary!
Weekly dates and updates are posted on the public Facebook group Allotment Soup: the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space.
