I was surprised when walking through the famous Kensington Gardens in London to see an ‘allotment’. So we made an addition to our itinerary. Here was a chance to see what I had seen on gardening or cooking shows from Great Britain.
The Royal Parks first allotment in Kensington Gardens since World War Two and the first Royal Parks allotment to feature a hen house and beehive.
The allotment, built on an old store yard by Enterprise staff, is a resource for school children and is open to the public.
The allotment uses materials from the St James’s Park allotment, which the Royal Parks closed in 2009 after four years to return the land to its original state.
This serves as an inspirational resource for the public to visit as they wander through the park.
Raised beds help keep it clean and save the gardeners from sore backs. Love this patch of sage.
C’mon John I know you loving this too but we have to go.
