A little about us:

********************************************************************************************************** Our allotment site is very popular at the moment. More local residents than ever want to enjoy growing superb vegetables and flowers in a vibrant and friendly community. We have almost 30 people on our waiting list. Although we are one of the largest allotment sites in Barnet with around 250 plots, this will take quite some time before enough plots become available for new members. So that we don’t keep people waiting for what may well be more than 2 years, we’ve suspended our waiting list. If you’d like to look at other allotments, you can find lists of them here for * Barnet * Enfield * Haringey Good luck, but keep an eye on this page as we’ll open the list as soon as we can. ********************************************************************************************************** This large allotment association spans two adjacent sites at Crescent Road and Hatley Close in Friern Barnet. There are 225 plots and 179 members. We have vacant plots occasionally and run a waiting list when we are full. Each site has a car park and an access road through the middle. In May, we have our Annual Plant Sale which lasts for approximately three weeks. We have a lovely new Trading Hut which we open between 10am and 12 noon every Sunday (except for 4 weeks during December/January) and we have cake and coffee on sale for a nominal fee. Our Trading Hut is “manned” by two volunteers and a Committee Member each week. We stock almost anything you would need on an allotment and also have strimmers and lawn mowers which we lend out to plotholders. We have our annual summer barbeques where we encourage plotholders to bring their families and friends and have a fundraising raffle. We also have a similar set up (although inside due to the weather) for our Christmas drinks. Our Trading Hut is a place where people can drop in on a Sunday just for a chat and coffee and socialise with others. Come down and see us next Sunday.
