Join the Cheetham & Crumpsall Community Allotment Group!

Join the Cheetham & Crumpsall Community Allotment Group!

Join the Community Allotment group – make friends, enjoy the outdoors, learn new skills, feast on the fruits of your labour and do something good for the planet.

The group is open to anyone in the local community. Members must be able to give a few hours per week to work as a team and share with others whilst learning how to grow fruit and vegetables in a green and sustainable way.

The group meet for around three hours on the second Monday of each month, from March to November. The group ask all members to attend whenever possible so we get to know each other. This provides an opportunity to discuss that season’s work – for example: sowing seeds, potting on, planting out, weeding, harvesting. All tools are provided and work will be distributed between us. To finish drinks and biscuits are shared!

There will be a named contact but all members take some responsibility for the running of the site.

Group code of conduct:

  • Attend as many sessions as you can
  • We all take responsibility for the site, tools and plants
  • Respect people on neighbouring plots
  • We harvest together and share equally

The community allotment group are based at the Cheetham & Crumpsall Model Allotments on plot number 110 of 120 plots. You need a keyholder to access. There are two entrances:

  • Path at the bottom end of Abraham Moss Tram Station Car Park
  • Entrance from Hazel Bottom Road

Address: 8 Stoneyholme Ave, Manchester M8 0BX
