Allotment Education is a small Community Interest Company (CIC) in Nottingham. We are an agile, professional, pupil-focused business and our goal is to imbed horticulture into the school day. We are passionate about teaching children and young people where their food comes from and the powerful mental health benefits of gardening.

Our work environment includes:

We work with some of the most vulnerable children in the city who may be survivors of trauma and/or living with trauma and challenging environments. These children can at times, require an extra layer of patience, kindness, respect and nurture. It is a privilege to work with such vulnerable children, though can be challenging at times.

All the tasks encompassed in raising food and flowers from seed will be orchestrated by you with the help of the children and young people in your schools. You will also be able to build relationships with the parents and carers at the seasonal plant and produce sales you will deliver each summer.
