England: Nottingham Allotment Transformed into Community Garden

It's interesting how an old style allotment was transformed into a community garden in England. Usually allotments get developed into housing ( like our US and Canadian Community Gardens.) 
Nice to see it going this way,

The Nottingham branch of a national environmental network was today staging an event to celebrate the transformation of a derelict allotment into a flourishing community garden.
With help from Government-funded community programme SureStart, Groundwork Greater Nottingham (GGN) has turned the site in the city's Netherfield area into a fruit and vegetable garden, complete with a plastic tunnel to protect the plants and a swing seat and gazebo.
GGN is hosting the event today to encourage local residents and community groups to get involved with the gardening project.
GGN's volunteer team leader, Chloe Griffiths, said: "Projects of this type are good for teaching people about growing their own food and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
"This will be a great event where people can see what work Groundwork and SureStart have been doing.
"Everybody is welcome, especially families with younger children."
The event is taking place between 1.30 and 3.30pm at the allotment which is located off Chandos Street in Netherfield.
GGN is part of Groundwork, a network of social and environmental organisations working with people, local authorities and businesses to help social and economic regeneration through improving the local environment.
