Allotment resources aims to preserve the history and skills of allotment gardening and provide knowledge and education for everyone.

The benefits of gardening, whether on an allotment in a home garden or as part of a community project, has been shown to be myriad. Sir Richard Thompson, President of the Royal College of Physicians said of gardening, it:

costs little and anyone can do it. . . gardens are restorative environments and . . . good for you. Gardening burns off calories, it makes joints supple and is fantastic exercise. Gardening as a physical activity has been shown to be helpful in the treatment of anxiety, depression and dementia.
