Welcome Grant. Great to have you with us. Great blog on German Allotment Gardens. I am in the UK at the moment and there is a massive push by the people for more allotments here. Unemployment levels continue to rise however there is a corresponding movement toward community reintegration via initiatives such as the the Green Valley Grocer. I look forward to reading more of your blogs with examples of ways toward a better future. Have fun oooobying!!
