About Us

We are a motley crew; Young families, single people, young couples and retirees. The image of the old man with a cloth cap, drinking tea in his shed is less and less a reality.

You could not have helped but notice the ever-increasing interest in:

  • The quality of food being produced
  • How it is produced
  • Organic food and products
  • Care for the environment
  • Climate change

With such interest, the Allotment group has received more and more enquiries from those who wish to rent an allotment or are wanting to grow their own food at home. Questions raised range from "what do I grow when" and "how do I cook it?"

Although we don't have all the answers, it is one of our desires to share what we know. Therefore, we regularly open up the allotments to those who don't have a plot in Chesham, just to share our "growing pains and successes". From tea and coffee mornings and seed swaps, to fish and chip suppers and cheese and wine evenings, Chesham Allotments Group welcomes anyone with an interest in growing food for themselves.

Check out our events and come and join us. We are waiting to welcome you.
