We are pleased to be able to make available to plot-holders a series of leaflets created by the DRY project, in collaboration with ourselves here at the Society, that address future concerns about water shortages and drought and how that may affect allotment growing.
The DRY project was founded by in April 2014 by a team of researchers from Loughborough, Warwick, Exeter, Sheffield, Cardiff, UWE, Harper Adams and Newcastle universities with an aim to develop an easy-to-use, evidence-based resource to inform decision-making for drought risk management in the UK over a four year period. Representatives from the National Allotment Society, members and other plot-holders have contributed their knowledge and experiences to inform the good practice and options outlined in the following leaflets.

All the resources produced by DRY are available on the DRY Utility website:
