Allotment residency

Quarry Road allotment is a peaceful green haven nestled between a train track, a new housing estate and rows of Victorian houses. Over 80 allotment holders tend to their plots and some have been there since the beginning, turning a waste ground into the much loved community growing space it is today.

The words ‘community’ and ‘grow’ are the two main points on the Grow Ryde compass and as resident artist I’m interested to understand how quarry road allotment spills out into the wider community and how my art can be a part of that.
