Londoner’s Desperate for Allotment Space Can Adopt a Pensioner’s Garden!

Old Man

Wandsworth Council and Age Concern have today announced their new initiative for the 1,500 people on a waiting list for a garden allotment.

Londoner’s will be able to sign up to ‘adopt an elderly persons garden’ and tend to it as if it was their own whilst receiving a fair share of the vegetables and fruit they harvest.

This match making service will allow Londoner’s the benefit of having a garden whilst promoting relationships between the young and elderly. These gardens will also be better tended and allow for more appreciation and enjoyment by their owner.

The average wait time in Wandsworth is 39 months, but in nearby areas wait times are dramatically worse – Islington is an approximately 25 year wait whilst Camden has a whopping 40 year waiting list for a plot.
