We are a very active de facto self-managed site with a relatively short waiting list; currently we nearly have all plots let. We have a shop which is open at weekends during the growing season from February to October (Sundays only during July and August), along with an adjacent accessible toilet.
We have regular events, including a plant sale in spring, a produce show at the end of summer and a pumpkinfest at the end of October. We expect plot holders to assist with site working parties during the year as any members of a small community would do to help each other.
If you would like to come and see us, please come to one of our social events and introduce yourself, come into the shop during opening hours or email us using 'get in touch'. If you would like to take up a plot and you are resident in Merton please read the Apply for a Plot page, taking note of the commitment in having an allotment!
One of our plot holders has been writing a blog about his plot since 2012 - read here
