Although we are a Vegan house hold and business, we are still on a journey to go plastic free and be as sustainable as we can with our food.
Currently, we have Abel and Cole deliver organic veg to us every Wednesday.
We are whole food eaters most of the time - occasionally enjoying the odd Veggie burger!
The Pigeons love us being in the Allotment... they also love stealing the Peas!
In our bathroom we are now completely Vegan and plastic free, which still makes me happy when I walk in there are see glass jars full of toothpaste and paper tubes with deodorant instead of plastic!
We are getting there with plastic free kitchen and our aim is to be as self sufficient with our food as we can be , so in 2019 we started our allotment here at Riverside.
We love it - we have had lots of success, a few failures and lots of fun!
Here are a few more images from our first 12 months on the Allotment

We were gifted an old Greenhouse from my parents who are no longer keeping their allotment... they will have some space in ours instead now in 2021 onwards
we grew lots of wild flowers to encourage pollinators and birds
