What do we encourage?

We promote following ideas for the allotment garden, which we consider as good:

  1. Persons entitled to establish an allotment are: farmers, an organization of farmers, an organization related to agriculture, city (town, village) authorities or an NPO organization.
    • Even, if a person establishing allotment gardens is an incorporated company etc., we consider that their establishment is good, if they do not make high profits while managing the allotment gardens.
  2. We think that the management of an allotment garden is good if it has one or the other of the following items:
    • The allotment garden has a users' (gardeners') organisation and a good partnership exists between its representative and the allotment garden owner.
    • Although if there is no user organisation on site, an owner can get and establish a users' cooperation.
    • A gardener uses his allotment satisfactorily and cooperates in the management of the whole allotment garden site.
    • There is a rule concerning the management and the use of the allotment garden.
    • The users alternate and they help each other if needed.
  3. The following uses of an allotment garden are desirable:
    • The gardener can use the same allotment for a long period.
    • A user cultivates his allotment and grows the crops he desires.
    • A user strives to improve the soil where crops grow up.
    • A user understands the problem of repeated planting, and so performs a crop rotation.
    • A user fully performs weeding-out management in order not to cause problems to the surrounding users.
  4. We are aware of the potential strong growth of weeds and think that 30-50 m2 per allotment plot is a good size for an allotment.
