There are over 800 allotment plots across 11 different sites in Epsom and Ewell. Some of these are self-managed (i.e. run by their own associations, with our support) while a majority are available to rent directly from the Council.

Why have an allotment?

  • Exercise - working an allotment gives you plenty of fresh air and healthy exercise.
  • Stress relief – studies have shown that spending time outdoors an with others relives stress.
  • Food source – cultivating an allotment provides an affordable source of fruit and vegetables, an essential part of a healthy diet
  • Socialise – getting together with fellow leisure gardeners is a great way to socialise and make new friends. It’s the sort of activity that lends itself to co-operation and contact.
  • Biodiversity – allotments provide a varied and valued habitat for wild plants and animals. They provide valuable green space within our towns and cities making them more environmentally friendly, sustainable and attractive places to live.
  • Education - Sites can help children, especially in urban areas, to learn about nature and how food is grown and to observe wildlife outside classroom biology lessons.
