Would you like to eat fruit and vegetables free from additives and preservatives that are fresher than any you can buy from the supermarket?
Then why not rent one of Newcastle's allotments. (pdf, 85kb)
Allotments are cheap to rent and might even save you money in the long run.
As well as providing a healthier diet there are lots of other benefits to renting an allotment.
Many sites offer half plots for first time gardeners or why not get together with some friends and share the work.
You will also find that the other gardeners on the site will be delighted to share there knowledge and experience with you.
There are around 3,000 allotment plots in Newcastle on 62 sites. Have a look at the sites available and decide which area you are interested in.
Allotment sites in Newcastle are run by Associations who carry out the day to day management on behalf of the Council. For details of the allotment associations see above PDF Document.
Once you have decided which allotment site you are interested in contact the Allotment Officer who will put you in touch with the appropriate secretary.
Rents vary from site to site but the average cost is £30.00 for a full plot.
Don't delay the sooner you ring the sooner you'll be eating your own homegrown fruit and vegetables.
