Discover The World Of Allotment Gardening
We are a community enterprise run by a group of volunteers helping its members and making allotment gardening available to the citizens of Newton Abbot and district.
The Association was founded in 1919 on a plot of land rented from Lord Courtenay. Today we have five fields, namely; Blake's, Bradley, Coach Road, Cooke's and Decoy.
Newton Abbot Town Council is our Statutory Authority, and we have a close and happy relationship working in association with them as our landlord.
