An origional book on something familiar....
on 12 March 2012
Allotments are becoming popular again across Britain, with waiting lists of up to 40 years in some London boroughs. A growing suspicion of GM food and environmental concerns over food miles and excess packaging add to the appeal of home-grown vegetables, as well as the attraction of having an outside space to escape to. On the Eighth Day God Created Allotments explores the history of the allotment, linking political ideology with the rise, fall and rise again in the interest in allotments. The author has a wide knowledge of the history of English radicalism, which coupled with a personal interest in his local allotment society creates an interesting polemic.
