    Default Allotments in Edinburgh: someone to share

    Hia,

    there is a long waiting list for allotments in Edinburgh.

    A friend of mine, who is disabled and partly uses a wheelchair, is keen to share her allotment with somebody with a bit more time and dedication and her plot is big and beautiful. She is very easy-going. PM me if you want contact details.

    Oh, and by the way here is the website for the

    Federation of Edinburgh Allotment Plotters.
    http://www.fedaga.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/

    Our virtual allotment site with pics:
    http://ferryroadallotments.squarespace.com/

    Most of them are run and let by the Council, but there are also some independent sites - see FEDEGA list and contact details.

    Council website:
    http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/internet..._an_allotment_

    selected sites have a waiting list of 11 years, waiting list stands at about 900, average waiting time is about 5 years.

    Hi Ulla,

    I wish I was a bit closer and I would grab the chance. You are only about an hour from me and it is very tempting, but being honest I would probably only get there once a week and that would not be fair.

    Good luck, I hope you find someone suitable, Mandy

    Hiya, not sure if your friend is still looking for help. I'm in the Ferry Road/Inverleith area and would be willing to help with some weeding and watering. Available regularly as I'm usually out and about with my pooch.Been waiting over a year now for an allotment and itching to get my hands dirty.
