First year on the allotment?

Ever wondered (or can’t remember) what it is like when you first get an allotment plot? Go to the Members’ Stories section of this website and read what Andrea did on her first year – both initial failure then great success.

While you’re there you can also read how not to do it. Chris made some schoolboy errors when he first took on a plot – definitely not to be recommended!

Allotments can also be a great place to teach children about where food comes from and how to grow it. Lucy recounts some lovely experiences with children on her plot.

See Jobs for April to learn what to do on the allotment this month.
