Take Part in The Big Allotment Challenge

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

We received an email from Liz Cooney, who is the Assistant Producer at Silver River Productions. Liz said:

“We are currently in production for a BBC2 prime time gardening show ‘The Big Allotment Challenge’.

The series follows a handful of talented amateur kitchen gardeners as they transform a plot of earth into a patch of beauty and reveal all the wonderful possibilities that can be unlocked from allotment growing. Kitchen gardening and growing your own produce is an amazing way to live and this series celebrates that.

We are looking for contestants to feature in the series, those who have the skill and dedication and who could dig their way to victory and be crowned the winner of The Big Allotment Challenge. People who can cultivate the perfect carrot, make their green tomatoes into award winning chutney and turn their dahlias and sweet peas into floral arrangements fit for a Queen.

So whether you’re an allotmenteer, a city living window box grower or a gardening enthusiast, we want to hear from you.

It couldn’t be easier to apply; all you need to do is email grow@silverriver.tv for an application form or call 0207 907 3401.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 13th of March 2014.”
