Why have an Allotment?
In a recent survey from National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners nearly every person said their love of allotment gardening comes from the fresh air, home grown produce, healthy lifestyle and like-minded people this activity offers.
If managed properly, an allotment can produce enough food to supplement a family’s weekly shop, with fresh fruit and vegetables over the year. This does require hard work and dedication but even the smallest crop grown, is money saved from the supermarket.
