England , Wensleydale
From the 1500s land began to be 'allotted' to the rural poor for growing vegetables and raising a pig and/or cow and chickens. Interviewing people from Wensleydale for the project 'Dales Plants and Gardens 1900-1960' has shown that few people remember either their parents or neighbours having a garden. Garths and good land went to grazing before anything else. However, during one interview a reference to Canaan Allotments in Redmire came up. Since then Canaan Allotments have been referred to by other people.
