The Barnet Federation’s overall aim is a strong and sustainable allotment movement in Barnet meeting the aspirations of all those who use our allotments.
Our practical job in seeking to achieve this aim is to represent, inform, support and encourage all the allotment societies and allotment holders in Barnet.
The Federation was formed in 1965 at the time of the amalgamation of the boroughs of Finchley and Hendon, and the urban districts of Barnet, East Barnet and Friern Barnet into the London Borough of Barnet. We hold at least nine meetings a year for site representatives to discuss current issues and an annual general meeting in February.
The Federation holds an annual plot and site competition in July together with a prize giving at Rathbone Allotments in October where cups and shields are awarded together with monetary prizes.
