Financial value benefits of allotments
Brighton & Hove Allotment Federation recently funded a study to identify the real costs and savings made the local council by people having an allotment. to examine and quantify the benefits of allotments to the city’s residents and to Brighton & Hove City Council. With only 37 sites they found savings of £385,000 so in Birmingham that figure could be in six figures.
