Malta introduced its first allotment gardens in April 2011. The scheme, which is called Midd Idejk fil-Biedja (Try Your Hand at Farming), aims to encourage people, especially the young and those living in urban areas, to take up organic farming.
There are currently over 50 allotment plots located in Malta. The scheme is run by The Ministry for Resources and Rural Affairs.
Germany 1.4 million allotments
United Kingdom 330,000
