Grow Your Neighbour's Own garden share scheme
Are you on the allotment waiting lists? Ever seen an unused garden and wished you could grow your own food there? Need some help on your allotment plot, or do you have a garden on which you'd love to see food grown? Grow Your Neighbour's Own is about matching these people together.
The scheme aims to help form lasting (gardening!) relationships between people, preferably people who live near each other – the garden owner and volunteer gardener arrange between them what they will grow and how often the gardening will take place, and share the produce as it is harvested. Allotment holders who'd like a bit of help with their plot can also register to the scheme to find a co-worker.

The scheme is now closed for the 2013 gardening season. We can help allotment-holders seeking co-workers at any time, however, so to advertise for help on your plot please just complete the garden owner form below or give us a call.
