Allotments are in demand. More than ever, people want to be part of the allotment community to experience the enjoyment of cultivating land, making new friends, sharing ideas, being out in the fresh air and keeping healthy.
A grassroots network of allotment action makers are coming together to respond to this growing tide of interest and this guide is intended to help an understanding of the purpose, benefit and operations of allotments as well as collectively galvanising and growing support to deliver more allotments for Scotland.
At their annual conference in on Saturday the Scottish Allotments and Gardens Society (SAGS) launched a handbook containing a series of useful guides and case studies for the allotment community to encourage and enable people to start and maintain their own allotments.
You can download a copy of the handbook below but if anyone wishes a hard copy SURF are holding a limited amount so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to have one sent out
