Calstock Allotments and Chicken Co-op
Calstock allotments has roughly 30 plot holders all bringing their own style and knowledge and adding to a generally pleasant place to spend time. Calstock Primary School tend a plot with their Young Explorers after-school club often visiting the site to learn about growing food. There is also an active and productive community plot which is co-ordinated by Cornwall Partnership NHS Trust.
If you visit Calstock allotments, you will undoubtedly hear the cluck from the hens. They are looked after through a chicken cooperative - a group of people who share the responsibility and rota duty for the chicken’s care in return for the fresh eggs.
The committee organize social get-togethers and communal site clear ups a couple of times a year and are always keen to hear from people who want to get involved. There are a couple of plots available for 2016 so if you're interested in joining, please contact us here!
