“We held a Swap Shop event at our Grow Cheshunt Community Allotment last June. Attendees included other allotmenteers, neighbours and growers who swapped stories about looking after a happy plot. We shared tea together and swapped excess plants, seeds and skills from our neighbours. It was a really positive community experience and we look forward to many more!”
