The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

In Spring ‘11, I was offered to work on a little part of my friend’s allotment in Herne Hill, London. This is some of the pictures I have taken in this big, marvellous place in South London.

I just love how people made this piece of land their home.

The dry toilet, to make more compost :)

Everything is reused and reclaimed to make plants grow

And the wildlife just loves it

People make the best of the land they have

In the horizon, London’s growling…

And this is the allotment I worked on, mine being the tiny strip in front of the green shed
