History[ edit ] The most ancient evidence of the order is a record of the minutes of the Haddington lodge, opened 16 August , which begins with a compilation of fifteen rules called Interjunctions for ye Fraternity of Gardiners of East Lothian. Scotland was, in the 17th century, subject to civil unrest and intermittent famines. Rich landowners were interested in Renaissance architecture and the design of formal gardens for their vast estates. The first members of the Haddington lodge were not gardeners by profession, but small landowners and farmers who practised gardening for pleasure. Not practising an urban profession, they could not obtain the status of an incorporation similar to a guild in England and modelled their organisation on the masons, who had an organisation, additional to and independent of their incorporation: It organised co-operation between members, provided practical training and ethical development, and supported the poor, widows, and orphans. The lodges of gardeners were also the first to organise floral exhibitions, from From its origin, it admitted numerous non-gardeners as members.

Saturday 9 May But that era appears to be coming to an end. Local authorities across Britain are finally getting waiting lists under control by cutting the size of their plots in half, thereby allowing twice as many gardeners to share the same space, according to the National Allotment Society NAS. Local authorities have also been cleaning up their lists by preventing people from applying for multiple plots in the same area, and deleting applications which are no longer valid — some of which may have been put in by people who have since moved away from the area or died.
The result, according to Karen Kenny, president of the NAS, is that waiting lists are falling, despite continuing demand for plots in urban areas, especially from young couples and families interested in growing their own food. The move has attracted more young people to apply for their own allotment, she added, as they find a half-size plot measuring square metres far more manageable than the standard square-metre version.

Take the Saints Trivia Quiz now! Fiacre Fiachra is not mentioned in the earlier Irish calendars, but it is said that he was born in Ireland and that he sailed over into France in quest of closer solitude, in which he might devote himself to God, unknown to the world. He arrived at Meaux, where Saint Faro, who was the bishop of that city, gave him a solitary dwelling in a forest which was his own patrimony, called Breuil, in the province of Brie.
There is a legend that St. Faro offered him as much land as he could turn up in a day, and that St. Fiacre, instead of driving his furrow with a plough, turned the top of the soil with the point of his staff. The anchorite cleared the ground of trees and briers, made himself a cell with a garden, built an oratory in honor of the Blessed Virgin, and made a hospice for travelers which developed into the village of Saint-Fiacre in Seine-et-Marne. Many resorted to him for advice, and the poor, for relief.
His charity moved him to attend cheerfully those that came to consult him; and in his hospice he entertained all comers, serving them with his own hands, and sometimes miraculously restored to health those that were sick.
