My Life on a Hillside Allotment (Paperback)

My Life on a Hillside Allotment Cover Image


Set against the changing social scene in Wales—as the traditional culture of coal mining, heavy engineering, and poverty gave way to a greener landscape and more affluent community—this is the story of a man with a great passion in life. Terry Walton's allotment, a small parcel of land for gardening, has been the center of his universe. From the first time he opened his eyes in a nursing home the other side of the allotment fence to his current role as media personality on radio, TV, and in the press, Terry's tale unfolds in fascinating detail. He lovingly documents the changes over the years, the characters he meets and his own heartfelt conversion to organic gardening methods. This fascinating memoir also includes anecdotes, topical tips, and family recipes plus delightful line drawings, which will make it the perfect gift for gardeners and allotmenteers.
