Community allotment feeds off Quantil and Workhorse Generation’s help
Horticulture Week 16 February 2023,
Mark Clementson, retail sales director at Lancashire-based vegetable, herb, strawberry, and ornamental supplier Quantil and Phil Mabon, owner of Mabon Design and Print have combined to support a community allotment with Quantil donating a pallet of over 1,000 vegetables and herbs.
They met during the 2022 HTA National Plant Show and through Mabon’s involvement as a trustee for the charity hub Workhorse Generation discussed the work of their supported charity, Greenpath Ventures, who run a community allotment in Colchester, Essex. This led to the donation for the allotment, which provides a "vital meeting place for those in its community who are vulnerable or in need of mental health support including people living with brain injury, people living with dementia, homeless people, refugees, and asylum seekers".
Managed by Rob Mann, who himself suffered a brain injury in a car accident in 1994, Greenpath Ventures’ allotment site grows food for the community and offers a safe environment for people to meet and be active. Mann works with the City Council, the local Night Shelter, and the Colchester Garrison to supply a "green haven for those who will benefit from the safe outdoor space and activities on offer".
