If the thought of growing your own fruit, vegetables and flowers appeals to you, there are allotment plots in Edenbridge available to rent.
There are two allotment sites in Edenbridge:
1. Access from Forge Croft
This is the larger one, east of the town centre, and managed day-to-day by the Edenbridge Allotment Gardens Association.
Cost: £30.75 a year for a full plot, including insurance. Half plots are available. There are also kitchen facilities available for that well-deserved cuppa!
To find out more and to secure a plot, email the Edenbridge Allotment Gardens Association: firstname.lastname@example.org
The smaller allotment site off Swan Lane in the north of the town is managed direct from the Council office.
Email email@example.com or call 01732 865368 to check on current availability and rent charges
According to the National Allotment Society, an allotment can produce enough food to supplement a family’s weekly shop over the year if managed properly.
As well as financial gains, tending to an allotment can bring a huge sense of achievement as well as physical benefits. It’s a place to become part of a community of like-minded people and great for families too.
