I am a 19 who was fortunate enough to have grown up with an allotment. I remember pestering my mum when I was 11/12 and thankfully it worked. I say fortunately because we got our 10m by 30m plot just before it became cool, just before the demand shot up and waiting lists became discontinued.
I have had many projects on my allotment, the most exciting being the barbecue and greenhouse. These had to be designed, materials sourced and eventually built developing many skills and sowing the seed of an engineer within me.
My blog for my allotment is: http://matsallotment.wordpress.com
I had a plan to blog about my allotment since the summer but due to university workload I have not been able to commit as I would want to.
I am primarily interested in alternative food production and sustainable technologies; this encompasses new technologies, social behaviours, analysing problems and by default fixing/altering these problems so that the following solutions work in 50 years.
I have developed my interests, in food, sustainability and more generally in engineering through my allotment and I am at the stage were I am craving for new knowledge and experiences.
