Pete Jackson, the gardening expert on STV’s 5.00pm regular programme ‘The Hour’ will be taking over a patch of land in Glasgow’s Pollock Park and working it as an allotment. He’ll be growing fruit and vegetables and reporting his progress week by week on the programme. It’s a challenge he can’t wait to get stuck into. “Anyone who knows me knows I’m really mad about growing my own and enthusiastic about getting people into their own green spaces, which is why I think city allotments are such a great idea,” Pete said.
As well as watching the programme interested gardeners can go along to see the plot for themselves any time the park is open and progress will also be reported on the web site.
If you are proud of your allotment and would like to show it off, BEHIND THE ALLOTMENT GATE is a 5 part 30 minute television programme being made by Sean James Cameron and Interfusion Films. Sean is looking for UK based contributors to take part in the programme. The show looks at the passion for growing your own food on allotments. If you have an interesting allotment, a good personality, a passion for your plot and wish to take part please contact Sean at email@example.com
It doesn’t matter if your allotment is big, small or untidy – all you need is a passion for your allotment.
