MyHarvest project from the University of Sheffield
The MyHarvest project from the University of Sheffield that aims to assess the benefits of growing food in urban areas. Volunteer participants undertake to keep an allotment diary over a 12 month period, recording basic information about activity such as sowing and harvesting, time spent, and so on. A member of the society started a diary on the 22 March 2018, so is approaching completion. The society member shares:
“It has been really interesting to keep a regular record in the folder supplied, and I would encourage others to get involved. I came across the project via the RHS magazine but only recently visited the MyHarvest website which has more detailed information, (including how to get involved). Why not have a look and maybe join in?” www.myharvest.org.uk
