Being organic helps to keep down costs, we get free muck on our allotment but bags can be picked up for free along country lanes were farmers/stables put bags out for the taking. Making your own feed - comfrey/nettle or seaweed can all be made for free.
Growing fruit and veg which you like but which is expensive in shops ie - blueberries, strawberries, asparagus...this list could go on and on...I was suprised at the cost of rubarb and blackberries in the shops this year and both grow for fun on an allotment.
An allotment is like a green gym...think of how much is saved not paying gym fee's...the number of times I've paid a years subscription into a club only to stop going after a couple of months...
