Stewart Avenue Allotments – New Trading Hut
Stewart Avenue Allotments are introducing a small on-site Trading Hut from 10-12 each Sunday morning during the growing season, starting on April 28th.
They are planning to stock a small selection of gardening items, from compost to labels, all at reasonable prices. Growing advice and details of how to apply for a plot will also be available and they will have the kettle on! Anyone who joins the local Allotments Society is eligible to use the Trading Hut (you don’t have to have a plot). You can join the Society for a small annual subscription when you visit.
Alongside the Trading Hut they will also have plot-holders’ donations of excess vegetables, plants, seeds, jams and chutneys made from allotment produce that will be available to purchase. Funds raised will go to support our own and other local Allotments.
Allotments are very important green spaces for the environment, biodiversity and saving on food miles, as well as providing many benefits for plot-holders. See their website and the Upminster Facebook page for further details and to see what’s available each week.
