Gardening Projects

Our gardening projects are based across Nottingham; from our allotment in Stapleford to our polytunnel at the Nottingham Fire and Rescue Headquarters. All the food we grow is used within our social enterprise to support a more sustainable approach.”

Nottingham Fire & Rescue Head Quarters Polytunnel Project

We have an on-site polytunnel at the Nottingham Fire and Rescue HQ and here we grow herbs, tomatoes, salad and vegetables. We have recently put in a raised bed and water butts and we are also growing plants.

What do we grow here?

Our "Dig-In" Allotment

Pulp Friction has an allotment based at Dig-in in Stapleford. Here we grow soft fruit and use it in our smoothies or cooking. Working on the Allotment is great fun and members learn how to grow fruit, look after fruit trees, and carry out general allotment tasks from pruning, weeding, planting and growing.

What do we grow here?

We are working towards complete sustainability by using our own produce and reducing the amount of commercial waste that we create.

We don't do waste

We try to reuse everything we possibly can, even down to our waste. We support our staff and members to minimise waste by using both traditional compost bins alongside our fabulous wormeries. We also have a new dedicated composting section in our allotment at Bessell Lane in Stapleford.
