Allotment destruction – UK

on June 1, 2013

I stumbled upon this on the guardian UK.

How depressing that there are attempts being made to remove people’s access to allotment space.  If anything,  should there not be an increase in allotments?  Considering the UK Government’s austerity push,  it would make sense to encourage local urban farming.

In local news,   our first electricity bill post solar install came in,   $824 credit (and that is just up until the February reading)!! 

Also,  broccoli aplenty,   parsnips, and Jerusalem artichokes too!.
