Whetstone Stray Allotments Community Plot
Community Plot on a self-managed Allotment site.
Since 2016, we have been developing a Community Plot, with Barnet Mencap service users and volunteers, for people who need support to garden and grow food. We have had funding from the Postcode Lottery, administered by the Royal Mencap Society for a Community Improvement Project, and from Barnet Giving (London Communities Fund).
The community plot is a vital part of our site. Users are encouraged to take part in in all of the activities of the site, e.g. BBQ and annual show. One of the Group members has developed confidence and skills and now has his own plot.
In April 2017, we will be celebrating our first year at the Big Dig on April 22nd, when we will plant the pond the Group has made, and eat pizza! All volunteers are welcome to join us.
Vehicular access is via the main gate on Holden Road. This is close the to the point at which Woodside Lane becomes Holden Road, next to the bridge over the railway line.
Please note that the main gate is padlocked. Car parking is available in several places on site. The nearest tube station is Woodside Park - Holden Road exit.
