Grow More Food

Poster promoting production in Scotland. This is a variation on the famous 'Dig for Victory' campaign, aimed at the Scottish public. Allotments -land set aside for city people without gardens - were a recent development. They were originally organised and encouraged by the government for those made unemployed during the Depression of the 1930s.

I read that all councils in England and Wales, except Inner London, must by law, provide allotments for anyone who is interested. Any group of adults over the age of 18 and registered on the electoral role can group together to request the council provide space. If you are interested in starting an allotment garden contact your local Parish, Town, Borough, City or District Council.

Food, More, Grow
