So you think you might want an allotment?

If you enjoy working outdoors and like a challenge then an allotment could be perfect for you. Allotments can be hard work at times but seeing your fruit and vegetables grow is reward enough.

The benefits of having an allotment are:

  • Enjoying growing your own fruit and vegetables throughout the whole year;
  • Great way to exercise by using nature’s natural gym;
  • Enjoy seeing your allotment thrive, which means improved happiness and well-being;
  • Good way to make new friends and work with like-minded people;
  • Saving money by growing your own food; and
  • Doing your bit for the environment. Protecting an open green space and maintaining habitats for hundreds of wildlife species.
