Editor's Viewpoint: An idea takes root

Our story today on the Poleglass allotments that turned a scrap heap into a fertile oasis producing a wide range of crops shows what can be achieved with imagination and some seed funding. The project is already an astonishing success with a wide range of household foods being harvested.

The project attracts an equally wide range of people, from schoolchildren to foreign nationals to those suffering from mental illness, equipping all of them with new skills and new interests. Those behind the project intend to keep expanding it and they deserve every credit for their initiative to date.
