Simon’s Thriving Allotment Garden in UK

https://simonsallotment.blogspot.co.uk/ 

Simon sent us the link to the planned demolition of a bunch of small homes in the UK (see previous post), and has this wonderful blog of his garden in an allotment patch of land in the UK.

Here is the Wikipedia def. of “allotment.” You see them along train tracks throughout Europe. Weekend gardeners, community gardens, little shacks/sheds…Totally wonderful.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
