Grow your own
Growing food locally is one way we can all help to reduce our carbon footprint – you can’t beat the taste of fresh produce, especially if you have grown it yourself! Allotment keeping is a great way to keep fit, enjoy the fresh air, make friends and grow your own favourite fruit and vegetables. If you’ve got room you can even grow flowers for cutting!
Allotment gardening is increasing in popularity and demand for allotment plots in Cardiff is soaring.
Many of Cardiff’s allotments have benefited from increased investment in recent years, providing better access roads, new water supplies, security fencing and composting toilet facilities.
If you are a Cardiff resident and want to take up allotment gardening, you can register your interest in applying for a plot.
If you are new to allotment gardening – or would like some information about keeping an allotment, we have prepared a handy guide (2.7 mb PDF) giving a summary of the rules in the tenancy agreement and helpful tips on planting and managing your plot. Please note this guide is being updated and the new version will be available in March.
