STAA Community Harvest Project is an initiative to sow, grow and distribute fresh fruit and veg to where it is most needed in the communities surrounding St Anns Allotments.
As well as directing surplus produce from our community gardens and volunteer plot holders, this year we are growing with the specific aim of supplying our local emergency food providers and social cafes. In 2020, we supported 3 local groups with regular fresh produce, this supported an incredible 120+ meals every week for local residents who were experiencing financial hardship, homelessness, social isolation and poor mental and physical health.
The STAA Community Harvest project has already helped hundreds of people across our local communities and this year we want to do more. To do this we need your help and support. You can help by growing produce for the project either on your own garden or at one of ours or you could support our deliveries even make a financial contribution.
