The Dragons Allotments project was brought to life by nursery children, staff and parents. It is about developing a piece of waste land into an allotment area with an outdoor learning space (Forest Kindergarten programme), with part being developed to encourage wildlife. It has been an inspirational project, gathering momentum and interest from the wider community. In addition to this, it has presented all of its participants with an opportunity to showcase their skills in a variety of areas, including; gardening, building, design and selling.
The Ferguslie Pre Five Dragons Allotments have ignited a positivity, confidence and sense of achievement amongst local children, their parents and others within their community. This project is revolutionising engagement across the community and is already making a real difference to local lives in the context of high levels of deprivation, social exclusion and high levels of unemployment.
