I'm moving back into SE1 in October and would like to get an allotment or similar space.
I am looking for an affordable small plot of land or some private outside space to rent, where I can pursue two of my passions, gardening and creating art (painting & sculpture). I would need space to grow herbs, vegetables and fruit etc and I need a sheltered space for storage and perhaps to sit and paint etc. such as a small shed.
I have looked for allotments but they seem to be oversubscribed in Southwark with long or closed waiting lists unless anyone knows of anywhere that isn't?
I have heard some people rent out garden plots privately and unused pieces of land not suitable for other purposes do sometimes become available for rent. I am very open minded about location and it doesn't have to be local as long as I can get there by train or bicycle.
