1 The Crescent Allotments
Off Bute Road South
We're a growing project in West Gateshead set up to share skills and local, naturally produced fruit and vegetables from our orchard and allotment.
The Hop Garden is normally open for visitors on the first Sunday of the month from 10.30am until 4.30pm during the main growing season (mid May until October) and at other times by arrangement.
Our volunteers meet regularly.* So if you would like to find out more about growing organically in a sociable, friendly location, why not come along? Regular volunteers receive free fruit and veg in exchange for their work, which is even more reason to join us!
*If you're coming along for the first time, please drop us a line beforehand to make sure the session is running that week.
