Keep Those New Years Resolutions to Eat Better and Get More Exercise by Getting an Allotment!

Allotments are great for growing your own fresh fruit and vegetables. When you "grow your own" you know exactly how your food was produced and it always tastes better fresh from the ground. While you are looking after your allotment, without even knowing it, you keep fit and stay healthy because of the gentle exercise and fresh foods you eat.

It's not only your physical health that benefits from an allotment, gardening has long been known to improve mental health and wellbeing. The combination of fresh air, exercise, relaxation and the company of other allotment holders can do wonders to boost your mood.

Allotments are great for families too, children find growing their own food amazing and love to pick what they have grown. It is an opportunity for parents and grandparents to spend quality time with the younger generations passing on their gardening knowledge. Children will also love the nature that is attracted to an allotment, frogs, mini beasts and birds are just a few creatures that can be spotted on allotments making them an important haven for wildlife in the town.
