Our First Allotment Plan
- Trying to work out what we wanted to grow, and where to grow it
- Trying to remember where we grew vegetables the year before
- Trying to remember which varieties grew well, and what did not, over previous years
Inevitably, we reached for pen and paper, and pulled out the reference books we have at home. The output was our annual allotment plan - click the picture to see our first plan.
Each year we always wished we had kept our scribbled notes from the year before. Then we thought, how about not only keeping our allotment notes, but also turning this into something that would be useful for other people too?

Our product is made from recycled materials and sustainable paper products.
The digital version is not an editable document. It is designed to be printed off - we think it is much easier to work that way given the creative nature of the process and all the information that needs to be considered. We have tried to keep to a minimum the amount of paper that needs to be printed off, and the amount of ink used (ie no photos of fruit and vegetables - we all know what they look like!).
For the paper version, we have tried to consider the environment as much as possible - and have not compromised on our materials just for the cheapest price. Our paper version is made from a combination of fully recycled materials or from sustainable paper sources (as recognised by the FSC).
