Why get an allotment?
Allotments and gardens are green gyms, great for keeping healthy and active.
There are many benefits to gardening and producing your own food and you don’t need a huge amount of space to start. You can grow veg in a bucket, create a flower bed in a window box and still get the enjoyment and benefits.
Some of the many benefits of having an allotment include...
Improving your physical strength and mobility.
Improving mental health by being outdoors and connecting with nature.
The opportunity to socialise with others and share experience (and sometimes produce!) with likeminded people.
Cutting down food miles and doing your bit to tackle climate change.
Being in control of how your plants are treated before they end up on your plate. Nothing tastes better than your own freshly harvested produce!
