According to the National Allotment Society, an allotment can produce enough food to supplement a family’s weekly shop over the year if managed properly.

As well as financial gains, tending to an allotment can bring a huge sense of achievement as well as physical benefits. It’s a place to become part of a community of like-minded people and great for families too.
