Great Yorkshire Show 2013

Leeds & District Allotment Gardeners Federation have done it again. They have been awarded with a large gold medal at the Great Yorkshire Show for their demonstration allotment garden entitled ‘The Techno Allotment’. In addition they were also awarded a champions certificate for being the best educational stand.
This is the second year running they have achieved these awards for the demonstration allotment gardens created at the Great Yorkshire Show.  In addition this follows an earlier success in April when they achieved a Best in Show award at the Harrogate Spring Show.
We are very proud to receive these awards and it is just reward for the volunteers who have spent many hours preparing and creating the stands.
Although it is extremely nice to receive these awards the primary aim of creating them is to publicise allotments in general and the many benefits allotment gardening has to offer. To this end there is also verbal advice, help and literature available on the stand.
