Sherford to embrace The Good Life, with allotment sign-ups

In time, Sherford is set to embrace its very own version of The Good Life, with allotments available for the community to use and benefit from. A green, sustainable town in so many ways, Sherford residents and community groups will be able to grow their own fruit and vegetables, just a stone’s throw from their front doors.  
 
While the first allotment is still several years from use, a two-hectare space has been identified for the first wave of plots, located along Gemini Road by Sherford’s first play area and near the Country Park. In total, there will be eight-hectares of land dedicated to allotment space at Sherford, which will become available as the town develops over the years.  
 
Even though Sherford residents won’t be picking up their spades quite yet, those who are keen to secure an allotment plot are being invited to register their interest. Sherford’s project team will keep a record and enquiries will be dealt with on a first come first served basis when the allotment plots are released. You can register your interest at info@sherford.org
