Allotment plot photo 2

Allotment gardens and spaces to grow food are an important part of the green space and leisure provision. They offer people the opportunity to strengthen their communities, achieve more sustainable lifestyles and maintain a better quality of life.

Growing your own food delivers many benefits, the most recognised of these is the provision of a better diet which in turn helps create an improved level of physical and mental wellbeing. In addition, food grown on allotment gardens can act as a good resource for learning new skills, a better environment for wildlife and a place for increased social connectivity.

Gosport has 11 allotment sites in locations within the Borough. So, wherever you live in Gosport, an allotment site should not be far away.
