Sharing Table 2.jpeg
  • The Sharing Table encourages recycling and re-use.  Our aim is that members don’t need to buy new plastic but re-use what is already available for sharing

  • The Sharing table has been really successful.  Miles of cardboard have been and gone.  Lots of seedlings, plant pots and other useful items have been donated and taken for re-use.  

  • Over the summer there's been a lot of produce sharing - especially marrows!
