Food Growing

The 2.5 acre Food Growing Zone on Academy Fields has full mains water and natural water collection facilities. Divided into sectors to provide raised beds, container and greenhouse growing, the area will also include fruit cages and an orchard sector.

Once fully established, the Food Growing Zone will be available for use by students, parents and staff of Alec Reed Academy and also by other local schools and community groups who can take advantage of the various training courses that will be provided by our professional Food Grower and Trainer.

The Food Growing Zone is secured with high level fencing and gates and CCTV.
