National Allotment Week

National Allotment Week is an annual celebration in the UK, taking place from August 7th to 13th. For those who aren't quite sure what an allotment is and what it entails, an allotment is a plot of land designated for individual gardening. Each plot is divided into smaller areas, allowing each person to cultivate their land as they wish. Allotments are often referred to as 'community gardens' or 'kitchen gardens'.

What are the benefits of having an allotment? There's a lot more than you might expect! Many listed benefits include a higher quality of life gained from the extra exercise and fresh air. It is also an enjoyable and rewarding hobby, providing a sense of relaxation and connection with nature. For older individuals who enjoy allotment gardening, it offers a chance to meet new and like-minded people and socialise. For children, it's a brilliant opportunity to learn about nature first-hand and play in an open and nurturing environment.
