Growing Space: A History of the Allotment Movement


Manufacturer: Five Leaves Publications

Product Information

"There are currently over 300,000 allotments in the UK with roughly 100,000 people on waiting lists. Allotments are popular, and under threat. This accessible social history book looks at how changing economic, political and cultural conditions have affected the demand for plots. Allotments are not a benign activity for the poor, but have a history which reflects national and local policies on land use and food. Alltomenteers have often had to fight to hold on to their sites. In the face of pressure from developers, housebuilders and councils, is there a future for these city fields and country gardens?"

Lesley Acton. Five Leaves Publications, 2015.
