How big is an allotment?


The average plot on the Dinting and Gamesley sites are each 125sq meters, but we do have half plots available too.  The Plots at St Mary’s Road are generally approx 85 sq meters.  At GAFA we promote the concept of plot sharing – this allows many more people to pool their efforts or share an allotment to achieve their goals more easily.  For example at our St Mary’s Road site some plots are shared by three or even four people which provides a comfortable space for growing a range of vegetables yet remains relatively easy to maintain and improve.
