Fancy growing your own healthy fruit and vegetables? What could be fresher, healthier and more satisfying than what you have grown yourself? Allotment gardeners have been doing it for years, so why not give it a go?
For many people across Britain, gardening is the ideal way to unwind. Whether you cultivate flowers or food, there is an immense pleasure to be gained from growing your own produce.
Allotments are also great places to make new friends, share ideas and get some exercise in the fresh air. All age groups can participate and ideal for family leisure time together.
Cllr Manny Roper, Chairman of Grounds and General Maintenance “In addition to growing food, there are social, health and wellbeing benefits including improving physical and mental health, stress relief, becoming more environmentally aware and educational for children”
