Each year we run competitions for the best allotment site and best individual plot in the borough of Barnet. For the site competition, there are two categories, namely large sites and small sites. For the plot competition, societies are asked to nominate one plot per site.
Alongside the competitions we seek nominations for the Ted Green Memorial Award, which is for an outstanding community initiative by an allotment society during the previous twelve months. It is named after Ted Green who was for many the secretary of the Federation.
The 2019 competitions took place in July, with judging over the weekends of July 13 and 20.
The prizegiving will take place on October 21 at Rathbone Allotments. Cups and certificates will be presented to those winners and runners-up who are able to be there.
