Finding a Place

Food can be grown in the smallest of spaces, so even if you have no garden, you can sprouts seeds, grow herbs on your windowsill or have some cut-and-come-again salad in a pot by the door.

But there comes a time when you want to grow more, and then you look for an allotment or to share a garden with someone else.

There are a number of allotment sites in the Reading area. The majority are run by Reading Council and you can apply for one on their site: Allotments

Other allotment sites are run by Earley Town Council (details on their Allotments page), Shinfield Parish Council (details on their Allotments page), Tilehurst Allotments (details on their website) and Woodley Town Council (application form on their Allotments page).
