It can be so disappointing not having an outdoor space to grow in, i
As a member, you’ll have access to our community of gardeners, where you can connect with a gardening together buddy and share a garden. If your first connection doesn’t work out, don’t worry you can find another garden through our website.
You’ll also have access to our gardening forums, where you can ask for advice, share your tips, and connect with other members of our community.
We understand that accidents can happen in the garden, and that’s why we offer insurance for our members. Our insurance policy covers members in case of personal injury.
How much time do I need: We highly encourage Aspiring growers commit for a full growing season at a minimum. The weekly time commitment is flexible, as the hours depend on the seasons and weather. The key is to maintain good communication and to set realistic expectations for what you can accomplish in the garden.
In addition to the community and insurance benefits, we also plan to offer our members invites to workshops and events.
Some workshops and events are designed to help you connect with a garden partner , while some improve your gardening skills and knowledge. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced gardener, you’ll find something of value in our workshops and events.
Finally, by becoming a member, you’ll be supporting Gardening Together, a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting sustainable and community-focused gardening practices. Your membership fees will go towards helping us support our older members who need that extra help.
Our yearly membership fees is over half what you would pay for an allotment and we feel some gardens are a million times better in terms of local and size.
We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
Together we can grow, learn and share in the harvest.

The right to grow
Everyone should have access space to grow which brings health, well-being, and access to food and beauty. Over 100,000 people are on the allotment waiting list in the UK.
We plan to be a resource for ideas on growing food in gardens, and to support, educate, and help connect communities in gardening together.
We believe these connections will have a mix of community benefits:
Food security: share in the harvest you can even grow edibles that look fantastic in a regular garden border.
Mental health: Give people access to green outside spaces.
Reduce loneliness: encourage neighbours to connect over a healthy positive activity
Intergenerational: invigorate and energise older adults, as well as help, reduce the likelihood of depression and loneliness.
