Free allotment/garden?

I have a fairly large plot of land - good allotment size which i dont use. just took old shed down.





i want to let someone who actually loves gardening to use it for free; who do i ask, where do i advertise, or do any of you know a decent person who needs a plot

Free allotment/garden?
I don't know where you live, but I would love to have a large area to garden in. I used to have a huge yard with all kinds of gardens. Veggie, flower, herb etc. I've had to move to a small apt. at this time with not much room to plant anything. My long term goal is to have a big farm where I can do all the gardening and farming I want. You might try your town. Sometimes they have community gardens that people can rent for a season. They may be interested in using it. But there may be some legal reasons not to do this. So be careful, lawsuits for someone getting hurt on your property could be a problem. Good luck! I hope you find what or who your looking for. By the way, I love your name!
Reply:Try advertising in the gardening section of your local paper or in the freeads (Adtrader.co.uk if in UK). You could also put postcard adverts up in the window of your local newsagent/ post office etc. Find out if there is a local allotment and put an ad up there or in local garden centres. I am sure it will be snapped up soon enough.
Reply:It's not the usual thing they do but maybe you could try your local freecycle group.
Reply:The writers of Eastenders are in need of a good plot, perhaps offer it to them.
Reply:Check with local nurseries, they might be interested or may know someone who is. Also you might check with some local vegetable growers. Make a deal with them, use your land and supply you with fresh vegetables. If your area has a farming bulletin, put an ad it or put notice up in local farming and gardening supply stores. Good Luck!
Reply:You could try Craigslist.com It's divided into regions and areas, so you are more likely to find someone nearby who would love what you have to offer! :) Be careful though, there are some nuts and con artists out there, so you want to make sure the people you are dealing with are "okay" if you know what I mean, especially since they will be coming to your property/home. I'd talk with them on the phone beforehand and maybe even meet up with them in a public place to make sure you know who you are dealing with. Is there not someone you already know who would love this opportunity? I would have loved that back when we lived in a smaller home with too much shade in the yard for a veggie garden. Good luck!
