Welcome to Plain Pond Allotments
Hello. We are a small, friendly allotment site in Wivey. Our aim is to get as many people as possible growing some fresh fruit and vegetables. Our plot-holders range in age from 18 to 85 and many of our plots are rented by families. We welcome well-behaved children and pets.
As well as three different sizes of allotment, we offer a communal plot, taster beds, and plot-sharing opportunities. Whatever size 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.
Growing your own fruit and vegetables means you will be eating fresh, flavoursome food, packed with nutrients and vitamins, and which have travelled zero miles to get to your plate! Your friends, family and neighbours will also benefit from your surplus in good years.
An allotment is a commitment and often a challenge, but we think the benefits are worth it! Having an allotment can really enhance your well-being. 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. 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.

If there is a waiting list when you apply you may be able 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!
