The Association’s Objectives are:

  • To promote the establishment and use of land in the Bath & North East Somerset area as allotments and to conduct negotiations with the local authority and private landowners to that end
  • To promote the gardening interests of members and take action to protect members against damage, nuisance, trespass and theft
  • To obtain a supply of seeds, fertilisers, goods and other horticultural equipment and sundries on behalf of members at as competitive a price as possible
  • To encourage members to garden in whatever way they choose so long as they do not disrupt other plot holders on their site
  • To co-operate with other gardening associations in matters of mutual interest
  • To promote the health and activity benefits of allotment gardening
  • To promote knowledge of wildlife and to enhance appropriate biodiversity.

Benefits of membership include:

  • being part of an organisation that can act as a voice for allotment holders and can liaise with the council when problems arise;
  • opportunities to meet with other allotment holders to swap ideas and advice;
  • newsletters to keep you up-to-date;
  • discounted gardening products at Prior Park Garden Centre and at Gardenalia;
  • public liability insurance;
  • membership-only discount seed and potato catalogues (organised via the Trading Hut);
  • invitations to allotment-related events;
  • group membership of the RHS and access to discounted entry to RHS gardens .

Members are welcome to attend our committee meetings and are encouraged to attend the AGM, which is usually held in November.
