Allotment Competition

This year, we are excited to announce that Crowborough Town Council is holding an allotment competition across its three allotment sites.

There are four allotment award categories and details about how each category will be judged can be found on the relevant entry form below.

Judging will take place in the second week of July and the winners will be presented with their prize at a special awards ceremony in autumn 2024.

Allotment Award Categories

The four award categories are as follows:

Best-Kept Allotment Award:  A winner will be selected from each of the three allotment sites in Crowborough: Herne Road, Owlsbury Farm and Pilmer Road.

‘Overall Winner’ Award:  There will be an overall winner chosen from the three best-kept allotment award winners.

Ecological Allotment Award:  This award will be given to the allotment tenant who has applied a range of ecological principles and ideas to their allotment plot.

Children’s Allotment Award:  This category is open to children aged 17 and under.  The allotment tenant must apply on behalf of the child.  However, there is a section on the entry form for the child to complete (with adult support if required) which will give them the opportunity to provide details about the item/s they are entering and what they have enjoyed most about their allotment experience.
