We were founded 70 years ago by local residents, including our late Chairman and President, Charles Strangwige, to promote gardening and allotment activity in the Avery Hill and Eltham Park areas and we are still going strong today. Many of our members are tenants at Pippenhall allotments on the Bexley Road and other local allotment sites.
We organise various events throughout the year and run a shop selling a range of popular garden products. The shop is open every Sunday morning at Pippenhall Allotments- see the shop section for more details or better still pop along on a Sunday morning to see for yourself.
We look forward to meeting you soon.

Update on allotment toilets and having bonfires as of July 29th
The Royal Borough of Greenwich have now allowed the toilets to reopen. We ask that you use your own hand sanitizer before using the toilets.
Bonfires on site are still not permitted until further notice
Reminder about car use on site at Pippenhall
Please do NOT drive down the centre path at Pippenhall if it’s raining or there has been heavy rain, or use the bottom of the site to turn your car around. The path and the ground at the bottom of the site gets extremely wet and often floods as the water does not drain away quickly.
Just a reminder that the wheelbarrows are NOT to be taken and used off site. They are for use ON SITE ONLY by those plot holders that have purchased a key to the locker storage shed, please do not keep them on your plot overnight and always return them to the storage room after use.
There are no vacant plots currently available as of January 2022 with over 50 people on the waiting list with the council. Please note that all enquiries about allotment availability or joining the waiting list for an allotment should be made with the Royal Borough of Greenwich via their website. We are unable to help with enquiries about allotment availability. Please see the allotments webpage for more information.
