Colwall Allotment Association

 

Colwall allotments are located in Colwall Village Garden in Old Church Road, opposite Old Orchard Lane. They have views to the Malvern Hills and are surrounded by a newly planted traditional orchard.

 

The 7 acre site is owned and managed by Colwall Orchard Group. The allotments were created in 2011 and cover about 2 acres. There are about 60 plots in a variety of sizes with many around 60 square metres, or a quarter of the standard allotment size. They are gardened on organic principles.

 

On the site we have:

  • Communal tools stored in a shed on site
  • Toilet facilities
  • Rain harvested and stored water
  • Bike racks
  • Muck and mulch deliveries

 

There is limited parking and tenants are encouraged not to drive to the site.

 

The allotments are managed by Colwall Allotment Association (CAA), a community allotment group, to which all plot holders are members. All members are welcome to join the CAA Committee. The CAA is a member of the National Allotment Society.

 

Colwall Village Garden is a sociable and family-friendly place and relies on volunteers and communal spirit to get things done. Allotment tenants are a good mix of age and experience and knowledge is shared generously. Everyone is encouraged to be part of the allotment site community, lending the skills and support that they can to maintain and improve the site. Volunteer Days are held every third Sunday of the month.

 

Social events are arranged through-out the year often with the Colwall Orchard Group (see Events page).
