Allotment alternatives in the UK

Posted by

About a month ago I published an article offering advice on how to get an allotment and how to deal with high waiting lists, since then I’ve come across other schemes and alternatives to an allotment, which are helping people get access to green space where they can start growing their own fruit and vegetables.

I’d thought I’d share information on these schemes to see if they would be any use to you.

If you don’t have time to look after your garden, no doubt someone on your street would love to look after it for you.  This video explains more about the scheme and why it would be useful.
