Do you dream of growing your own vegetables, fresh fruit, herbs and flowers? If so, you will be pleased to learn that Great Staughton has a site containing 22 allotments.
There is also a young communal orchard on the site which was planted approximately 3 years ago.
Regular work parties to keep the allotment area tidy, weed free and in good repair, take place once a month from the spring months to late autumn.
The allotments holders meet once a year to discuss any issues and agree any particular work that needs doing. The annual rent is £25.00 to 35.00 per plot, dependent upon size. This includes the annual membership fee of £10 which is used to help offset any expenses incurred in the maintenance of the site.
Allotmenteers are a friendly bunch and are always happy to offer guidance to new members and also love to pick up tips from other members.
