What are the benefits?
Growing your own food can be rewarding in lots of ways – watching the seeds grow through its many stages and ending up as fresh produce on the table is a very satisfying feeling. In addition, you can be confident that your food hasn’t chalked up any air miles and is exactly what you want to eat. You will also discover new recipes as you work out what to with your pounds of potatoes! If that’s not enough, an allotment will keep you fit – for a lot less money than joining a gym – good for both your physical and mental health.
