Top Hints

Reduce Rubbish

Only buy things that you really need. Most of what we throw away could be used again. Think twice before you put something in the bin

National Allotment Week

It's time to take up your spade and dig for victory. This National Allotment Week why not do something amazing and help support the green revolution.
 

Get Composting

With many sites restricting or banning the burning of vegetation and other allotment waste, many growers are returning to nature by composting instead. Composting is the ideal way of returning precious nutrients back to the soil. Every piece of dead material can help support new life next spring.

Grow Your Own

Apart from providing low cost food, allotments also provide valuable recreational opportunities involving healthy activity and social contacts. Allotments are significant to our green spaces and provide habitats for many forms of wildlife.

Taking on an allotment plot is not all hard work; it can have many advantages, providing fresh home grown vegetables, fruit and flowers for you and your family, free from artificial additives and at a fraction of that you would have expected to pay in a supermarket or greengrocer.

There is also the social side, meeting new friends with similar interests and enabling you to enjoy a healthy outdoor life with gentle exercise and a place to relax and unwind.

Growing your own food is such a rewarding experiance which is why the National Allotment Society is celebrating National Allotment Week. Look out for local 'Party on the Plot' events near you.
