How Fresh is That

There is something about fresh organic food – and you can’t get much fresher than picking it, washing it and eating it there and then.

The Shared Garden Project, a group of 12 families in West Bridgford, Nottingham do just that. Sharing the work (only 2 hours a week) in their 6 gardens, they have fresh, seasonal veg and fruit just when it is ready to eat!.

Allotments are in short supply nationwide – but if you like the idea of sharing the work and already have a plot, why not invite a couple of people on your street to make a mini Shared Garden Project. A good guide is 4 households for a standard 500 sqm allotment if they work 2 hours per week.

Visit the Shared Garden website for details of what they do and how you can do the same.

If you have not got the time or inclination to garden yourself why not think about having an organic fruit and vegetable box delivered...?
