Welcome to Plain Pond Allotments
Hello. We are a small, friendly allotment site owned by Wiveliscombe Town Council and our aim is to get as many people as possible growing fresh fruit and vegetables. Our plot-holders range in age from 18 to 85. Many of our plots are rented by families and we welcome well-behaved children and pets.
As well as three different sizes of allotment, we offer an easy-access plot; a communal plot; taster beds; and plot-sharing opportunities. However small or large a growing area you want we can almost certainly provide it. We try to be flexible according to demand so if you have an idea please come and discuss it with us.
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 a challenge and a commitment, your plot can be whatever you choose to make it - a place of quiet reflection or a space for all the family to get involved with.
Call for a chat or go to the 'Contact Us' page of our website for more information and to apply for an allotment.
For any other enquiries please contact the Allotment Association Secretary - details on left.
If there is a waiting list when you apply 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!
