    Snadger you don't rotovate. You just fold the turf over. And the original poster said his plot was grass. Hence posting about lazy beds. Otherwise I would go back to the cardboard option

    If it's an hour then we'd have 5 man hours (Is a youth hour longer than a man hour?) per session - plus whatever help they can rope in.

    When I say grass its bound to have couch grass in it.

    I spose if they're keen they might want to do longer than an hour.

    Try to set targets for each session and work to the targets rather than man hours. Work backwards from an end goal. The last session will just be harvesting presumably......so won't take 5 hours.......whereas the first session might be to achieve a dug over plot! Weeded.......and ready to plant......at least some of it!

    Good luck......

    Loving my allotment!
