Free year-long allotment diary

Researchers at the University of Sheffield are seeking volunteers to participate in keeping an allotment diary for a year – recording their activities each time they visit their plot.

They want to understand:

  • the ways you use your allotment
  • how you manage your crops
  • how often you visit your plot.

It doesn’t matter what level of gardening experience you have – they would love to hear from you!
