The benefits of having an allotment

There are lots of reasons to have an allotment.

  • Get a great sense of achievement from growing your own food
  • Have a healthier diet
  • Access to a cheap source and variety of fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Can make you healthier, provide good exercise, help reduce your stress and blood pressure
  • Your food will have less contact with pesticides etc if you grow organically and generally tastes better than shop bought
  • An opportunity to spend time outside enjoying nature
  • It will increase your general well-being and give your mind something positive to focus on
  • A chance to escape the pressures of modern living
  • The opportunity to learn something new
  • Get a sense of community spirit and the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life in Hook making new friends and contacts
  • Finally, if you have children, it is great thing to do with them and show them where food comes from.
