With over six years of experience behind us with creating and developing school allotments. From the first 'accidental pilot' project: ‘The Allotment Project’ (Project 1) at Reepham High School & College (which inspired the creation of The Papillon Project as an independent charity) to an additional 10 school allotment projects (as of 2020) that we have intensively aided the creation and development of to a support network with 20 plus secondary schools that covers most of Norfolk, big things really do have small beginnings!
Please see below for a visual collection of our charitable work in schools and ones that are on the way!
VIRTUAL TOUR: Please click here to get a guided tour of this project.
We would love to take the opportunity here to show the visual work of ‘The Allotment Project’ (Project 1) that was created at Reepham High School and College. The multi-awarding Allotment Project is therefore the blueprint model for us to use in other schools and colleges. Any aspect, idea and creation that you see from the examples below can certainly be replicated in other schools/colleges on the same or smaller scale.

Below is the award-winning short film that was made about ‘The Allotment Project’ described by the headteacher, Mr T Gibbs, as "one of the most educationally complete pieces of work I have ever seen in schools".
Please see our 'WHAT WE OFFER' page for more information about how we carry out our charitable work in schools every year and how individual schools can get involved.
