This is another of Pavilion's good looking books. It's sub-titled 'an inspirational guide to allotments and community gardens' and features a wide range of spaces, from traditional style veg plots to ones based on permaculture principles or used to grow natural dyes or provide a creative spark for an artist. There's a skip garden (literally a garden in a builders skip), a roof garden and an organic community orchard among the places featured.
I love the mix of people - young & old, from various ethnic backgrounds - all united by a love of growing things. It's a great book for browsing, and you don't need to be an allotmenteer or involved in a community project to get lots from this book. I was particularly taken by the Brussels edible garden which provided food for the gardener's bees. How I'd love my own hive!
Moved from a garden-less city flat in the South West to a Yorkshire village in 2016. I now have a garden ... of sorts.
