Allotment gardening provides a wide range of benefits to communities and the environment.

Apart from being a great way to grow your own food, allotments are also a great way to meet people and help stay fit and active.

Allotments are significant to our green spaces and provide habitats for many forms of wildlife. In general allotment gardens are for the sole use of the cultivation of soft fruit and vegetables for consumption by the tenants, their family and friends.

Most allotments in the district of South Somerset belong to either town or parish councils.

We are responsible for only three allotment sites:

  • Bondfield Way, Chard
  • Little Sammons, Chilthorne Domer
  • Lakefields, West Coker


For more information or to be added to the waiting list, please contact us stating which of the three allotment sites you would like to be added to.
