Founded in 2010 the Forest of Dean Allotment Assoication has taken on land in two sites, one in Parkend and one in Whitecroft. Both sites were earmarked for community use and allotments were decided to be a fitting use of the land.
Today a committee of volunteers overseas the sites and ensure they are managed fairly for all.
Our aims are to primarily have a place to grow our own food and a plot of our own. We also wish to help others in the community to have access to a growing space, and our Whitecroft site has a raised bed set up which is available for individuals who would not be able to manage a full or half plot.
Tucked away next to the church in Parkend Village, this site is tranquil and surrounded by wonderful woodland.
Overlooking the hils rising towards bream this site offers stunning views of grazing land and forest.
We are a group of like minded individuals who have come together to manage our own slices of heaven.
