Allotments for All
To be able to grow your own food is a rare commodity in London, private allotments offer a sanctuary from the supermarket and the city, however the waitlists are slow moving and finding a space is difficult.
Planters, fixed in spaces that needed to be filled, gave the community the opportunity to grow their own food. They are situated in Stratford, guerrilla gardening as a protest against the privatisation of allotments. When the total area of each planter is added up it equals the size of an average allotment space ((5 rods/125 square metres). Homegrown food should be accessible to all, it can tackle the widespread need for food banks as prices and the poverty line ever increases. To open up the allotment is to live sustainably and healthily.
