"A space where people can be themselves, relax a bit and enjoy the outdoor space" Bob Bennett

"Root n Fruit: Therapy for my mind" Tom, Volunteer


For the past six months I have been photographically documenting ‘Root n Fruit’, which comprises of a community garden and allotment space situated in the heart of Stoke on Trent, in Middleport near Burslem.

Root n Fruit was borne from an idea in 2014 by local businessman Alan Christian, to create a community allotment for people in the local community to share and work together.

Since 2014 the allotment has changed and expanded. It is now run by Robert ‘Bob’ Bennett and Alexandra Littlejohn (of Middleport Matters).
