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

National Allotments Week 2017 – 14 to 20 August

What are you doing for National Allotments Week?

This year our theme is “Growing the Movement” a celebration of all the hard work put in by voluntary association management committees, plot-holder volunteers and councils managing, creating, developing and safeguarding sites.

So let’s tell the world about our thriving movement, we want to hear about new sites, site regeneration and innovative projects across the UK to include in our National Allotments Week press release. Email diane@nsalg.org.uk with details.

We will also be publicising Open Days and Allotments Shows in the Regions during National Allotments Week and over the summer, let us know about your plans and we will put them on the website and our National Allotments Week facebook page.

Email diane@nsalg.org.uk with your event details and we will send you a paper or digital publicity pack. We can also email you out the new National Allotments Week logo above to use on your website or publicity materials.

The NAS aims to protect, promote and preserve allotments and we call on all those who value allotments to support us in this endeavour, we can all do our part-

  • Allotment associations - protect your site, register as a community asset. Allotment Federations -keep allotments in the public eye, make sure they are mentioned in the Local Plan and lobby your councillors and MPs.
  • Councils preserve and value your allotment service – it has the potential to deliver some of your public health targets.
  • Plot-holders -join the National Allotment Society and support your regional allotment network to promote the allotment movement.
  • Aspiring plot-holders - do not be put off by the thought of a long wait – sign up for a plot now; without waiting lists allotment authorities cannot assess demand.
