Bungay Allotment Society
Clarification: Bungay Allotments and Gardens Association (BAGA) and Sustainable Bungay are separate organisations, however the Association doesn’t have (or really need) a dedicated website so the Association’s secretary, Kate Jackson, asked if BAGA could borrow some space on the Sustainable Bungay website for announcements and contact details.
There are very few allotment plots in Bungay and so, like much of the country, prospective plot holders are added to a waiting list. It’s important that we manage and grow the list as it will help us demonstrate demand to the council and could be an important tool in securing additional plots – so please fill in the form below.
But don’t despair! Allotments do become available and there are sometimes opportunities to share plots – if you’d be happy to share please mention this when filling in the form.
There are also growing opportunities in Ilketshall St. Andrew with Greengrow, a co-operative formed by local people to grow fruit and vegetables organically and to support others to do the same. They have a few acres and over the last year have planted an apple orchard and put up a polytunnel for plant raising and salad crops.
Greengrow are keen to help others learn the basics of fruit and vegetable growing and are setting up a demonstration allotment, every Monday, Friday and Saturday people are welcome to join them on the land, learn some skills and take home some veg. For those on the allotment waiting list this might provide a useful stop gap.
Becky and Anne of Greengrow say:
If you would like to join us growing fruit and vegetables for a few hours a week / month or would just like to make a one off visit we’d be delighted to see you: no experience is necessary and you do not have to be very fit!
