As well as the images in the book I have asked one of the allotment plot holders, Carole, who has helped me massively with the project by providing me with a key to site and allowing me unlimited access, to write a shot piece about what owning an allotment means to her. This is what she wrote to me, laid out how I intend it to be in the book:
I feel that Carole's piece of writing is a perfect introduction to my book. I asked her to sum up how important owning an allotment plot is to her and she has done an amazing job. I feel that the short piece of writing will really help the series fell like a book when it is completed and put together.
