Allotment gardening provides the opportunity for a year-round healthy lifestyle. Allotments help to address issues that directly affect people such as, food provenance and food security, sustainability, healthy living and eating and a productive hobby. At the same time allotments contribute positively to the environment and biodiversity by providing high quality agricultural growing spaces, which also provides a habitat for native flora and fauna.
Our site on the bank of the river Ericht currently hosts 16 full plots (4m x 13m) and 1 half plot (6.5m x 4m). Each plot also comes with a section within the poly tunnel (2m x 2m). We also now have some raised beds to allow people who have mobility issues a chance to do some growing. The plots are currently all taken but we operate a waiting list for anyone interested in taking on a plot.
The only thing we ask to be able to qualify for a plot is that you live in Blairgowrie or Rattray and you will need to be able to commit to keeping your plot tidy come rain or shine, winter and summer. Having an allotment can be a wonderful experience. The more effort you put into it, the more you’ll get out. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it so much that you will spend much longer with other likeminded enthusiasts.
If you are interested in being added to our waiting list please contact Nicola Watts at Erichtallotments@yahoo.com and hopefully it won't be too long until you are growing your own veg!
