I learnt about Allotment 45 when reading Food & Wine [see "Society - 2" in the top nav panel].  You can read p6 via  

http://www.iwfs.org/eac/food_&_wine/latest.pdf  until June 2010 as the address is for the current magazine.

in the yellow panel. 

Allotments yield good food.  A rhubarb pudding is described in the article.  Go to

to see one attempt at cooking it.


In Vancouver, there is a different approach to allotments.

Community gardens and other forms of urban agriculture are recognized as important neighbourhood gathering places that promote sustainability, neighbourhood livability, urban greening, community building, intergenerational activity, social interaction, crime reduction, exercise and food production. The 2010 initiative will allow Vancouver to use urban agriculture as a powerful tool to achieve multiple social, environmental and economic benefits.

What Counts as a Garden Plot?

These garden plots can be developed in a variety of spaces including community-shared gardens that are

  1. On rooftops, balconies, or on the ground;
  2. In private gardens that are part of the Sharing Backyard program; and
  3. Gardens that participate in the City’s Grow a Row, Share a Row program.

    The previous page sets out the garden.
