The National Allotment Society - National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners Ltd

National Allotment Society London Branch

The London Region is the newest National Allotment Society branch to be formed and we have been running for three years. Our aim is to recognise and support the huge concentration, diversity and growing needs of the UK's largest metropolitan area.

You may be surprised to know that within London there are some 741 allotment sites and 40,000 individual plots.  As you can imagine, these vary significantly in size, organisation and represent a wide range of diverse communities.

Quarterly Meetings. [All meetings are now held virtually]

We hold quarterly open meetings on a range of interesting subjects and regular committee meetings.  If you haven’t already been to one of our meet ups, please do come along! The meetings are open to all members and held throughout the London region. They are a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people and visit exciting growing spaces that you might not normally be able to visit.

The meetings are also a great forum to ask any questions you have or share issues you may be experiencing.  Our community have hundreds of years growing experience so there is always advice, inspirational stories and knowledge to be shared!

In the past we have had seed swaps, allotment visits, cooking demonstrations and guest speakers.  If your Allotment Society would like to host one of our meetings or organise a site visit for our members, we’d love to hear from you.

NAS Members, Woodhouse Allotments in Finchley  have uncovered the membership records from 1928 which fascinatingly tell us not just the names and addresses but also the occupations of most plot holders. This provides us with a rich picture of Woodhouse Allotments and of the wider social makeup of North Finchley between the wars.  CLICK HERE to view
