Grubby Hands

Granby Toxteth Development Trust have recently become involved in a project to spruce up a small green growing space called Grubby Hands and it is making us very excited so we can start sowing some veggies!

The plot lies opposite the old Coleman's building on Northumberland Street and will be familiar to anyone who knows their way around Park Road. The allotment consists of nine raised beds, only a few of which are being tended to by local residents, who are growing onions, strawberries, garlic and edible shrubs.

Sitting on a small hill, the plot sees sun all day long and would be perfect for those who have an interest in gardening but feel daunted by the responsibility of a full plot. We'd love to hear from anyone in the area who would be interested in taking on a bed to explore growing. The soil will soon be warming up so get in touch with Nicola or Mike.
