The Falcon Allotment is a volunteer and service user-led project, based at Ingle Pingle Allotments in Loughborough. It is an outdoor space where people can:

  • Grow Vegetables that are cooked at The Falcon Centre or given away to those in need
  • Care for the chickens
  • Enjoy fresh air and exercise
  • Take part in construction projects
  • Relax and socialise

Click here to donate via PayPalSince taking on the allotment in 2019, we have transformed the space to include:

  • Two indoor growing spaces (where you can garden and keep dry!)
  • A toilet
  • An area we can make our own compost
  • A summerhouse with facilities for making tea and coffee
  • A brick-built barbeque
  • Various planters and crop protections, made from recycled materials
  • A chicken coop and run

If you are interested in coming to have a look for yourself get in touch, we are at the allotment weekdays from 11 am.

The allotment relies on donations to keep running. Here are some ways you can help:

  • Make a donation via PayPal with the link below.
  • Make a cash donation in exchange for plants or hanging baskets depending on what is available.
  • Sponsor a chicken! We have 6 chickens that have been rescued from commercial egg production. 18-month-old chickens become less ‘productive’ and are routinely sent for slaughter. For a £7 monthly direct debit you will:
  • Help to rescue a chicken
  • Provide feed and bedding
  • Be able to visit your chicken
  • Receive a box of 6 eggs each month (subject to availability)

To sponsor a chicken please email us and click the link below to give just £7 a month!
