Rain or Shine – FREE Food Growing Drop-in Sessions
We offer free, drop-in sessions twice a week at the Carshalton Community Allotment. All ages and levels of experience are welcome. Enjoy the outdoors, meet other people, learn new skills, get a bit of exercise and take free fresh veg home. We are also creating wildlife friendly features on the allotment this spring.

We are open:
Mondays 1.00pm – 3.00pm
Fridays 10.30am – 12.30pm
Just bring wellies or other shoes you don’t mind getting muddy and warm clothes if it’s cold! We also have a hut, toilet, benches and tea making facilities.
