Allotments

We ask that all tenants visiting allotment sites consider the following:

  • Please keep your distance from other tenants to help limit the spread of the virus.
  • Be careful after touching site gates, locks or other communal assets. Disinfect your hands after each use.
  • The use of the sites if for allotment tenants only. No groups are allowed on site and only family members that live with the tenant can enter the site if the tenant is also present.
  • Do not use the water troughs to wash hands or equipment to sterilise them. The water is for watering purposes only.
  • Please stay on your own plot at all times and do not enter another plot under any circumstances.

If you have any questions, please call 01892 652907 (weekdays) or email allotments@crowboroughtowncouncil.gov.uk

 

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.
