Did you know that Farnham has it’s own Allotment Association and a 1 hectare site only a few minutes walk from the centre of the village.
With the support of the Parish Council, we signed a lease in January 2011 with the Rushmore Estate to rent a field just behind Crossways Dairy Bungalow at DT11 8DD. Our ‘plot’ consists of a fenced off area with access gates and 14 full sized (10mx25m) plots serviced by 3 large water troughs, fed from the mains. Over the past 10 years some of these allotments have been divided into half or quarter sized plots for those who either do not need a full plot or as introductory plots for new members looking to get started. More recently 11 raised beds were constructed on a half plot, the idea being to encourage members of the community with children or limited time, to become involved in a manageable and sustainable way.
Over the course of the year Allotment members support events in the village, such as the Car boot sale in May, the Farnham Garden Open event and/or the Farnham Street Fair in June. We host a summer BBQ held in August and organise a ‘Spud in a Bag’ competition. Additionally surplus produce and plants are made available to the local community from a donation table in the village.
