Horton Community Farm

Transforming 1.75 acres of the underused Cecil Avenue Allotments into a thriving permaculture centre for affordable local food, environmental education and horticultural therapy.

At the moment, the site on Cecil Avenue Allotments is mainly overgrown jungle with the derelict remains of glass and brick buildings. So far we've removed over 22 tonnes of rubbish.  Our exciting plans for the future include a community area with starter plots, a straw-bale building, a large edible forest garden, a nature area and polytunnels.
