Allotment and community gardens

Author: Lorna Muddiman - Published At: 2013-05-16 15:16 -

Community gardens showcase how a community, with sufficient will, knowledge and other resources, can come together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, thus changing the narrative of food in the surrounding areas as well as promoting healthier and more communal environments.

Allotment gardens are different as every gardener has his individual plot and the sites are created on leased land or land put at the disposal of the associations. Agreements/contracts regulate the relations with the landowner. Very often there exist allotment garden zones in the urban planning scheme.
