Allotments for All!

May 19, 2020

We love Jo Biglin's Big Issue article about her time spent on a North West Allotment that supports refugees and asylum seekers - Jo asks such an important question:


Why don’t we just… have more open community growing spaces?


This is such an important question, and from all the work that we have done on Mapping Manchester's Quiet Spaces we whole-heartedly agree that the we need more open community growing spaces and generally more community run green spaces.




The benefits for everyone (not just the people accessing the sites, but for wildlife, for better quality air, for drainage to protect against flooding, for cooling down the hot summers) are needed more now than ever and can be part of strategy towards future resilience in the face of climate change, increased threats from viruses, floods, wars and food instability.
