We have a mix of allotment plots at the site including raised beds and allocated growing areas within the polytunnels . There is water available on site via rain collection and also mains water as back-up in the summer. Allotments holders also have access to a composting loo. If you're interested in a plot or want to know more then get in touch.

'Jack's House' - Straw-bale classroom.

Jack's house was constructed by volunteers in 2013-14. It was the first of its kind in Wigan and was constructed to have as little impact on the environment as possible, using renewable materials in its construction and designed be low energy in its continuing use.

Jack’s house is a great facility for social and activity groups from coffee mornings to kids clubs to craft groups. Jack’s House is set in plenty of outdoor space with ample on-site parking and consists of a good sized classroom and kitchen with a unique composting loo experience!
