Hi all, just wondered if anyone would be interested in an allotment in the Galway area.

We have a site about 1 1/2 miles from Athenry that we would like to turn into allotments for use in spring 2010. We will prepare the soil and provide various itmes for use, it is a nice piece of land and very good soil, we live up the road a bit and our land beside the house, is of the same quality.
We will only go ahead with this if we get enough response as it is a big site, could accomadate 20 plots comfortably.

This is a new project for me and I would be very grateful for any tips or guidance on this, my passion is gardening but I'm more for the flower side, my husband is the veggie man, so if you want to discuss this further please contact him via email at p.heagney@hotmail.com for more information, i.e sizes and cost's.

Exclamation Edited by moderator to add descriptive title.
Original title too generic....... (Hi from Athenry Galway)
see rule 11
Members should try to use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic.

Hi Donna, welcome to the site.
I'm not sure you'll get a response about your allotments unless you put a different title to your post.
I assumed you were just saying hello, and was surprised to see you were offering new allotments. Maybe try posting again if you get no response?

Morning Sive,

Thank you for that, can you point me in the right direction as where to post my new venture as I don't really know. I did spend some time looking around the site but maybe I missed it, I would be very grateful for any advice, I'm used to working online in my job but really new to this type of thing.

Well, even if you just make sure the title of your post makes it clear what you are asking. Something like "Anyone looking for allotments in Galway?"....and see if that works!

Ok, post moved to "Fruit, vegetable, and allotment growing in Ireland" and retitled, which will make it easier to find.
Donna, please contact me via the email address on the allotments.ie site in my signature.
I can publicize your proposed allotments there.

Also think hard about putting your email address up for all to see.

Welcome Donna, Your idea to use your land for allotments is great and I hope it works. I have plans in the future for something similar in my home village in Tyrone. I believe for allotments to work they must be supported by the locals within about a 10 mile radius, if not closer, because the user's will need to spend quite a lot of time there. They will also respect it and promote it when talking to others. So I would suggest getting feedback from within the Athenry area - drop leaflets, put up a posters nesr the site, talk to Galway council and talk to schools (its really good to get kids involved - they tell mummy & daddy who go on to tell others)
Best of luck and let me know how you are getting on with it.
