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.
