The Beetroot

It's just a beetroot... or is it?

The beetroot

“It offers a chance to provide respite in gardening to those struggling to find calm and relaxation and a group for those isolated or afraid to connect with others.”

It may look only like a beetroot (albeit a handsome one) but it symbolises so much more. This is some of the yield from our allotment this year (2019). It’s organically grown, full of nutrients and has been tended to and cared for by our allotment worker and a team of freshly motivated volunteers.

It’s bounty brings hope for a more sustainable future for our food projects and a more nutritious, colourful and enjoyed offering for those in need. It offers a chance to provide respite in gardening to those struggling to find calm and relaxation and a group for those isolated or afraid to connect with others.

It’s not just a beetroot – it’s something cared for, something watched over and something shared.

It is a manifestation of joy, something we all should have opportunity to feel and experience.
