Allotment gardening provides a wide range of benefits, both to communities and the environment.
South Ribble Borough Council owns several sites which are administered by allotment societies.
As well as providing low-cost food and flowers, keeping an allotment can be a great way to stay healthy and meet people. Allotments often provide habitats for many forms of wildlife too.
There are long waiting lists for allotments, as plots do not become available often. You can put your name down using the following contact details:
