National Allotments Week (13 – 19 August 2007)
This week is U.K. National Allotments Week, promoting ‘the awareness and availability of allotments both locally and nationally, to show … the strength of support and interest for the heritage of allotment culture.’ This excellent initiative is quite new, but allotments themselves have stood the test of time. Here is an example from rural Portugal, on a tributary of the Duoro River, of a smallholding which has probably been in place for centuries.
