The Kensington Garden Allotment is a beautiful space run by a small group of regular volunteers.

It is open daily and members of the public are welcome to wander in anytime to enjoy and relax at the allotment, as well as pick up useful tips for growing their own fruit and vegetables. The allotment is also open to schools and community groups who want to learn more about sustainability and growing vegetables organically.


We are always looking for volunteers to help keep the space in tip top condition.

  • Drop-in group volunteering 1st and 3rd Monday of each month from 11am to 1pm
  • Twilight gardening 2nd Monday of the month (May-September) 6-7.30pm

Please visit our volunteer page for more information.

Sessions for schools

Bring your class to visit the allotment at Kensington Gardens. Brimming with fruit and vegetables in spring and summer, students can see how a variety of flowering plants grow and what the plants need. The allotment chickens will be there to entertain them too!

Please visit our learning page for more information.
