Greenfinger, renting a Plot in London
"I live in a Victorian terrace house.. with zero outdoor space, no garden, no balcony, no terrace.
One of the nicest things that's happened so far having signed up is that it's uncovered this community that I was never aware existed. I've had family, friends and strangers offer plants and help since getting started.
Just being able to have friends around for dinner, and the food on the table are things that have been grown in the plot is quite an exciting thought."
