National Allotments Week 2016 is being held next week from the 8-14 August.
This year, The National Allotment Society has chosen a ‘Growing Together theme in order to draw attention to the inclusive nature of allotment gardening, appealing to all sections of society from the unemployed to the professional, all races and religions and all levels of ability.
Karen Kenny, the National Allotment Society president would like to invite you to visit an event during National Allotment Week and experience the joy of allotments for yourselves.
“We are proud of the Allotment Movement in Britain and its continued success in offering opportunities for families to provide for themselves, whilst also being a valuable resource to diverse groups of people. Social inclusion is an important part of allotment life and there are many projects for those with both physical and mental disabilities, as well as projects which target the socially disadvantaged.
“We also see whole families from toddlers right up to and including granny and granddad enjoying working together on their plots.”
