Welcome to Plain Pond Allotments
Plain Pond allotments is a small, friendly site near the second rugby ground. The 23 plots are owned by Wiveliscombe Town Council. Residents of Wiveliscombe and the nearby surrounding area can rent a full, half or a quarter-plot (depending on availability) in accord with a Tenancy Agreement. Rent is paid annually direct to the council.
Having an allotment can really enhance your well-being. Growing your own fruit and vegetables means you will be eating fresh, flavoursome food, packed with nutrients and vitamins. Your friends, family and neighbours will probably also benefit from your surplus in good years. Being outside, tending your plot in the open air, whilst getting closer to nature and in tune with the seasons all have proven physical and mental health benefits.
Whilst having an allotment is certainly a challenge and a commitment, your plot can be whatever you choose to make it - whether you want a place of quiet reflection or a space for all the family to get involved with.

For any other enquiries please contact the Allotment Association Secretary - details on left.
If you join our waiting list you can opt to have a small growing area on our communal plot while you wait for an allotment. This means you will be able to grow some veg straight away. For those new to growing, it also means you can take advantage of the knowledge and experience of other plot-holders, giving you a headstart for when you get your own plot.
We run occasional workshops such as compost-making and potato-planting which everyone can attend. Alternatively, there is usually someone around to give you tips and advice on how to get the best from your plot.
Come and give it a go. You will receive a warm welcome!
