According to the statutes of the Federation its main purpose is to promote and further develop allotment gardening in Finland. To fulfill this task the Federation gives advice to new allotment garden sites and provides information and assistance to communal decision makers as well as authorities and private citizens who are interested in establishing new sites in their communities.
