SALGS are delighted to announce their success of a Big Lottery award of £9,716 for their ‘Wilderness Project’ and Compost Loo plan. Seaford Town Council has also supported this project by generously awarding £2,000 to the Society. The project is to prepare the ground and plant a traditional Native Hedge along the Vale Road boundary this autumn/winter and to site a disabled access compost loo to replace the current porta loo.

Wildlife Gardening on Allotments

Although the primary purpose of allotment sites is to grow food they offer many other benefits and their contribution to supporting wildlife in urban areas is significant. In recognition of this in 2012, many Local Authorities put together local habitat action plans for allotments as part of their overall Bio-diversity Action Plans.

The National Allotment Society (NSALG) is part of the Wildlife Gardening Forum (WLGF), a large group of organisations and individuals who share a passion for the wildlife, which enlivens our gardens and allotments, and who want more people to understand how important gardens are for wildlife, human health and well-being, and for a sustainable future.

Toast and Weedkiller anyone?

"Tests by the Defra committee on Pesticide Residues in Food (PRiF) have found that as much as 30% of UK bread contained glyphosate (the active ingredient in "Roundup"). A recent European study on city dwellers found that in the UK, 7 out of 10 people had traces of this weedkiller in their urine."
