At Stockholm's southside, on the hillsides' of Aunty O's mountain (Tantoberget) you'll find the allotments of Aunty O's Grove (Tantolunden). The area has been farmed since 1915, and today it consists of 111 allotments and a long queue for having one's own piece of paradise in the middle of the hustling and bustling city.

And remember, no matter how big or small, highflying or soildigging, there's always room to grow at Aunty O's Grove.
