Podcast | Conor Gallagher – AllotMe
Conor gave up his career as an architect to work on AllotMe, in response to increasing demand for allotment spaces across the UK and Ireland during the multiple COVID-19 lockdowns in 2020.
Conor recently secured funding of £250,000 to help further develop the site and its potential.
AllotMe’s vision is for it to be easy for anyone to have access to a sustainable way to source their food. Through research and development projects, they search for solutions to the growing issue in cities of food resourcing.
