Electronic Petition

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to provide more land for allotments for people to grow their own vegetables

This will do the following:

1. Allow people to save money.
2. Provide an area for abundant wildlife.
3. Help to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
4. Help to cut the amount of carbon dioxide in the world's atmosphere: people grow their own food instead of buying it all thus reducing 'air miles' (and shipping and lorry pollution).
5. Provide people with a community group to belong to and enjoy.
6. Provide people with a space to exercise while doing something worthwhile - it will benefit them in two different ways at the same time.

There simply aren't enough allotments around and waiting lists are ridiculously long in some areas.

Happy New Year love ! Signed the petition as fast as my fingers could type. I'm really worried that by the time I get to the top of my waiting list, I'll be too old and crochety to be able to work it. Hope you don't mind but I've knicked it for my blog too. Glad you're microclimate is missing the worst of the storms. I'm wondering how the wind knows how to loosen nuts and bolts ! :-)

LOL at the winds loosening nuts and bolts. If by signing the petition you get a plot quicker it will be worth it!

The more folk that add to their blog the better!
