National Allotments Week

National Allotments Week

National Allotments Week was started in 2002 by the National Allotments Society. It was started as a way of raising awareness of allotments and the role they play in helping people to live healthier lifestyles, grow their own food, develop friendships and support communities. The campaign week is still thriving.
