The august issue of the National Allotment Society magazine features a double page spread of water savings tips which Mark Carroll (BHAF Chairman) and Simon Powell (Vice Chairman) produced last year. Using less water on our allotments should be a major priority for plot holders. Water is the largest cost we have, and reducing this will help keep our rents as low as possible. Of course we should also aim for allotments to be as sustainable as possible and water use should be as little as possible. In Brighton and Hove in particular we are in an area where the is substantial pressure on our water supply.
So get those gutters set up on your sheds and harvest more water, and follow some of these tips!
