This Allotment: Stories of Growing, Eating and Nurturing

by Sarah Rigby

A celebration of allotment life in twelve original pieces - a vibrant collection about growing, eating and nurturing in these unique spaces.

An allotment. A space about the size of a doubles tennis court for the growing of fruit and vegetables. A health-giving, heart-filling miniature kingdom of carrots, courgettes and callaloo. A microcosm for our societies at large as people claim their 'patch' and guard it protectively, but also of welcoming arms, gifted gluts and new recipes from across seas.

They are places of resilience, resistance and freedom with a radical history (and the potential to be so again). They are blowsy dahlias, cricket on the radio and cups of tea in tumbledown sheds; they are buzzing bees and the wisdom of weeds and seeds.

This Allotment brings together thirteen brilliant contemporary writers in a glorious celebration of these entirely unique spaces: plots that mean so much more than the soil upon which they sit.
