Does anyone want to donate a piece of their allotment to me? I just joined the depressingly long waiting list.
If anyone has too much to handle or wants to share give me a shout.

I thought that Ringmer Parish Council had some spare plots at the allotments by the sub station between Lewes and Ringmer. They still might so it's probably worth asking.

I know it's not the same as an allotment but the Landshare thing is really good. People offer space for growing things in their garden, for other people to use. I've used it three years running. You look up Lewes on the national website and see what's available. Not like an allotment but a substitute while you're on the waiting list. The link thing doesn't work for some reason. Anyway it's www.landshare.net

It might help if people with no gardens had priority on these waiting lists.

Infact, there's no waiting list at Earwig corner and there may be one or two half plots available

There's a plot in Barcombe/Hamsey for offer. A good size and possibility for chickens too.... seems great.

carrot cruncher, even if a garden is unsuitable, or paved over, it is still a place to grow a plethora of flowers and vegetables in containers. Pretty hard to do, if you live in a flat with no garden at all.

Bongo, get a window box or move. seems that everybody these days think they are more deserving for one thing or another, and theses are normally the same people screaming for equality. unless it is a medical emergency ,NOBODY should have priority for any thing. get in the line and take your turn

Definitely try Earwig corner. We waited 3 months for ours. As opposed to 10 years at the Paddock. It's NOT council run.

There are allotments in the Coombe that have been empty for a long time - will need 1 - 2 years of ground clearance and nothing will grow over the winter as its so cold and damp - but in the summer its idyllic. Phone number on the inside of the allotment gate and ask for Chris

I agree, Winiterbourne Wanderer - LandShare is great, both for the veg-grower and the garden owner. But sorry, Luke, someone's already growing veg in my plot! Good luck

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
