About

Why have an allotment?

  • For freshness and flavour - you can't match the taste of homegrown.

  • Save on your grocery bill - fresh "in season" veg and a winter store in your freezer for pennies

  • Minimize pesticide exposure. ...

  • Avoid Winter Blues

  • Great for exercise. ...

  • Marvelous for your health. ...

  • It's social
