On Monday 23 March the Government issued new guidance on how much time we are to spend outside and where we are allowed to visit.
Horsham District allotments are all currently open. Allotment holders are reminded to please follow the social distancing guidance when at their allotment. When using communal gates, padlocks, tools and taps, please make sure you wear gloves at all times and clean your hands as soon as you can.
Visiting the site constitutes your daily exercise set out by the government.
For further advice, please visit the National Allotment Society website.
Having an allotment has many benefits. You can grow your own fruits and vegetables, enjoy more time in the fresh air, get some exercise and take pride in your produce. Plus, of course, you can meet other gardeners.
There are 11 allotment sites in Horsham Town, plotted in green on the map below, and more across the district. Allotment sites are largely leased from Horsham District Council or parish councils and run by allotment societies. Most allotment sites have vacant plots.
Use the map below to find your nearest allotment site, and scroll down to find its contact details, or to view the sites as a list.
If you want to have a go at growing fruit and vegetables but don't feel ready to take on your own plot, why not join the Community Allotment based at Chesworth Allotment site? The workload is shared and they offer advice and information, as well as making it social and enjoyable. Find out more on the Transition Horsham website.
