“Just wanted to say thank you for accommodating our school on their trip last week.
The children really enjoyed themselves and learnt a lot about what an allotment is and how it works. It was brilliant!”

Suitable for Key Stage 2. Sessions last 1.5 hours and are led by an experienced food growing tutor.

We can accommodate a class of 30 children per session, who will work with our tutor and be supported by their class teacher to take part in allotment gardening activities and go on a quiz trail around the allotment.

Sessions are held on our half acre community allotment training site on Westmead Allotments, Colston Avenue, Carshalton – well served by train and bus. Child gloves and tools provided and toilet on site. Sessions available after Summer half term and before Autumn half term.
