A series of original and charming illustrations offer insight into the world of allotment huts and offer inspiration to create your own, very special shed

Allotments are places to grow food, but they are so much more than that. They are also places that encourage spontaneity, exploration, learning, sharing, restful activity and camaraderie. This book is a celebration of  allotment huts—their architecture and design, but most of all the wonderful invention and resourcefulness that makes each one unique.
