Rosie, is the soil affected by sewerage (foul water) or sea water? Or what? Once the land has drained, how toxic will it be?
I know when I was involved in a flood in London In 1976, caused by amazing amounts of rainwater and hailstones with storm drains blocked by Autumn leaves, the loos in basement flats were backing up, causing 'foul water' to contaminate people's flats and gardens. I don't know how long it took for the ground to be safe for growing veg.
I'm happy to make a trip in my car, with as many plants packed in as poss.
