These are schools/colleges who have received our 'hard help' programme.
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!

Our 'accidental pilot' project that began in 2015
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.

It is our continue privilege to support these schools.

We popped in to visit @sprowstonhigh's allotment today to do some maintenance for this school. Absolutely delighted to see lovely things, from parsnips to rhubarb, giving it a seriously good grow🌿🌱! Lovely to think that visiting children will see all of this after Easter break! https://t.co/PGnQFNBjSK
With some discarded wooden poles and rope, the clearly & gently defined '🐞#rewilding🦋' area of @aylshamhigh's school allotment is now in place for young people to see the importance of what happens when 'we just leave nature to it!' and how successful it will be! #biodiversity https://t.co/Z8SfIfT5XD
