Happy New Year! A new path for Dorset Road Allotments and Leisure Gardens

On 1 January 2021 all our plot holders became members of the new co-operative set up to run Dorset Road Allotments and Leisure Gardens.   This means they each have one share in the new co-operative and an equal say in how the allotment site is run.

Becoming a co-operative is a milestone for the governance of our site giving us an opportunity to make the site the best it can be working with all our members.

If you want to read more about how our co-operative works, our Rules governing our site are published in the ‘About us’ section of the website.

Happy New Year!

Introduction to allotmenting

On Sunday 16th February we are holding a session to help all our new members who want some help with getting started on their allotment.

It will also be of help to those who are looking for advice and help on low maintenance allotmenting or would like to share ideas with fellow plotholders.
