Who can apply and how

Anyone can apply for an allotment. The person signing the tenancy agreement must be over 18 and reside within Hull.

Due to the increasing popularity of allotment gardening, all sites in Hull currently have waiting lists. To register your interest and have your name added to a waiting list, please contact us.

In the mean time, you could search for other spaces to get growing in Hull on the Landshare website.

Community allotments

If you are interested in growing your own fruit or vegetables but don’t want to manage an allotment on your own, why not get involved in a community allotment?

With Environmental and Management Solutions Ltd (EMS), we work with landowners and the community to identify unused pieces of land and turn them into a green space.

The allotments involve all local people - families, community groups and gardeners, old and young - to develop their own grow your own projects, learn how to grow their own food and enjoy the land.

For more information about community allotments telephone EMS on 01482 709 810, email or visit EMS’s website.
