We are an award-winning allotment and leisure garden society in the London Borough of Bromley. Our site is well hidden behind houses and trees and at 7.5 acres it is one of the largest in the Borough.
Including our half-acre wildlife garden and pond the site is host to a wide range of wildlife inhabitants including over 20 species of birds and several species of reptiles and amphibians such as slow worms and newts.
Our members are a diverse bunch from a wide range of backgrounds, nationalities and age groups. All members share a passion for growing fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers. Some also keep hens to produce eggs and we are lucky enough to have an apiary on site with over 15 hives to produce our own gooey honey.
We encourage members to recycle rainwater and compost wherever possible and have received awards for our achievements in recycling and enhancing the environment around us. We are proud to have the Borough’s (BALGF) “Champion of Champions” plot holder on our site together with a number of Gold Medallists whose hard work and dedication make our site such a profusion of colour.
We also hold regular events for members and the local community, such as our Open Day with Morris and Clog Dancers, Bonfire Night, and fundraising events for local charities.
