Instant Allotment by Louise Campbell

Louise Campbell's website shows Instant Allotment, a portable fabric structure that allows you to set up an allotment wherever you are.

Campbell, who came up with the idea last year but has only recently published the pictures, claims the project eliminates the hassle and cost of maintaining a traditional allotment.

Here's a bit of text from Campbell:


We all deserve our very own allotment, but they no longer come cheap. Therefore, this is an optimistic alternative. It is lightweight, always in bloom, and can be carried under one arm and installed for the day wherever desired.

Comes complete with flag, garden gnome, vegetables, flowers and fence. Stack of firewood, parasol, beers and garden tools are optional.
