Tonbridge Allotments and Gardens

Welcome to the Tonbridge Allotments website.

Welcome to TAGA the Tonbridge Allotments and Gardens Association. We have 7 sites in all with 4 in south Tonbridge and 3 in north Tonbridge. There are 242 plots available to rent. Please note we can only offer plots to residents of the town of Tonbridge.

We have a thriving community of allotmenteers on our 7 sites enjoying the benefits of delicious fresh food, growing fruit and vegetables of all varieties – including flowers too.

 

Are you thinking of taking on an allotment plot?

Owning an allotment is a commitment (well for most of the year anyway). It can be hard work. It will need some thought and planning. But it is also very enjoyable, very good for you and you get to meet some really lovely people. Plots are generally available as 10 rods (250 sq. metres) and 5 rods (125 sq. metres).

If you are interested on taking on an allotment please contact us and we will see if there is availability on a site near you. Please remember the allotments are restricted to Tonbridge residents.

We have allotmenteers from all walks of life, families, working and retired of all ages. They all have a passion for healthy food and gentle exercise. We also have many different nationalities, everyone is welcome. Everyone is happy to help and if you need really detailed advice there are some real experts on the sites too. We have a licence agreement you will need to sign and a little Green Book with all the rules and regulations. As the sites are rented from the council there are a clear set of rules we have to follow. We look forward to hearing from you soon 🙂
