Botley Meadow allotments (1.5 ha or 4 acres) have been worked for over a century. Today, members represent several nationalities which means there is a vast amount of expertise both in traditional growing methods from here in the UK and other cultures too. So, if you are not sure where to start – ask your neighbour!
There are around 60 plots of varying size and the site is bounded to the north by the Botley Stream. We have a solar powered water pump supplying water troughs around the site that members can use for watering.
There is a communal shed with second hand tools that members are free to borrow for short periods so long as they a re returned in good condition.
Botley Meadow usually organises an early and late summer barbecues to which all members are invited – these are ‘bring & share’ events.
We have put together a few pointers designed to help you manage your plot which can be found here.
