This year, Ericht Allotment Association was formed by a group of volunteers. Community Greenspace helped out with some advice including ideas, land searches, example constitutions and links to other allotment sites and groups to get the group started.
Since then the group have been offered 3 possible allotment sites and are about to sign a lease for one of them. The fantastic location in the Blairgowrie area, is still top secret but will be a challenge to clear and use as can be seen from the photo.
Community Greenspace are able to help groups who would like to set up community allotments and provide advice and support for things like finding land, securing a lease, becoming a constituted group, allotment rules, site design, soil testing, planning permission and funding.
