Growing up in Yorkshire, Claire Oxley loved the smell of tomato plants in her Grandad Cyril’s greenhouse, and the Garden Gang books she read as a child. Now she has her own Garden Gang of Allotmenteers. We all love wearing wellies and getting our hands dirty.
Companion planting has taught Claire about natural friendships in the garden (did you know mint leaves deter pests from tomato plants, and borage protects strawberries?). Claire has unearthed some beautiful flavour combinations within these natural pairings and used them to make Allotment’s delicious sparkling drinks.
We don’t use imported, exotic ingredients in our drinks. We question the wisdom of flying in pomegranates from Peru when our own gardens are bursting with produce. There are so many wonders to find in our own little corner plots and veg patches, so why not dig in?
The planet has been good to us, so we do our best to be good to it. We support community growing projects and believe that sourcing products and services from the UK is the most sustainable option to minimise our carbon footprint and food miles.
