About us

Our society was founded in 1952 to bring together people of every background and all ages from the local area who have an interest in the cultivation of allotments and gardens.


Many of our members live locally or have an allotment at Pippenhall Farm on the Bexley Road where we have a shop that is open every Sunday morning selling a wide variety of garden related products at discount prices.
