A Place to Grow

The preface to the second edition of the good practice guide for the management of allotments, Growing in the community (to be referred to hereafter as the guide), highlights the recent revival of interest in 'growing your own'. The consequent increase in the demand for allotments is reflected in lower vacancy rates and lengthening waiting lists across the UK. Over the two years since the publication of the guide, this trend has intensified. Estimates of waiting lists exceeding 100,000 are widely reported, and few areas have vacant plots. Local authorities have come under increasing pressure to provide new sites, and to accommodate alternative food growing projects where allotments are scarce.
