When we first arrived at our new allotment site we immediately spotted a rather lovely mosaic at the entrance. We were told that this had been created by a local resident and allotment owner.
I have now looked it up on the web and discovered that it was a community project, bringing in ideas and support from many of the allotment members. The idea was to represent what the allotment area meant to those from the local community who use it. I think it's lovely and highlights how important places like the East Finchley allotments are in urban areas.
Here is a short video explaining more about it.
