Peter the Garden Volunteer
There was a beautiful garden volunteer called Peter, who took people from the city on tours in his prized community garden. He told them tales about this place, the different characters and its features. Fulham Allotments, has 800 members and 400 allotments. This is one of the largest community gardens around, as well as one of the oldest! In fact this place was created as a part of the "Dig for Victory" campaigns so people during the war were able to feed themselves. Now this place is an OASIS for urban people to escape the noise, hustle and bustle of the city as well as connect to friends and grow their own fresh produce!
