Allotments

Do you fancy growing your own fruit and vegetables? Why not take the plunge and take on an allotment? Allotment gardening is a great way to keep fit and meet new people. We have three wonderful allotment sites around the town, each of which has their own unique character.  If you are a resident of Crowborough and want to get stuck in, why not have a look at what each of our sites has to offer…

A £50 refundable deposit will be charged for each new allotment plot held and some concessionary rates will be available.  Please see further information regarding the allotment deposits
