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 is a social event, a Plot and Site Competition Prizegiving in October. Those attending are asked to bring food and drink to share, and donations for a plant/seed sale.

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

The dates for 2019 are

  • March 18 – AGM and speaker – start at 7.30pm.
