Members’ meetings

The Federation holds several general meetings a year which are attended by representatives from its member societies. These usually consist of a short business part followed by a workshop or group discussion on a topic of mutual interest relating to self-management, which is intended to enable societies to compare notes and disseminate best practice.

In addition there are two social events: a Plot and Site Competition Prizegiving in October and a Quiz event in December. Those attending are asked to bring food and drink to share, and donations for a plant/seed sale.

The Federation AGM is held in February.

The meetings usually take place at 8pm in the Pavilion, Rathbone Allotments, Ryalls Court, Oakleigh Road North, London N20 0RY.

The dates for 2017/8 are

  • October 20 – Prizegiving and social
  • February 19 – AGM and speaker
  • April 16 – meeting and workshop
