We are a large but friendly allotments society in Hasland, Chesterfield.
Please have a look at our website and then contact us if you are interested in joining our society.
Files coming soon.
Ashfield Road Allotment Society runs the Hasland Allotments site for the benefit of currently over 90 members - including chicken keepers, pigeon fanciers, bee keepers and ornamental gardeners, although the vast majority of members use their plot to grow vegetables to eat themselves.
We are are a very diverse group of people - our members come from all walks of life and we have gardeners from age 5 to 95! We are always welcoming new members.
The Society runs on a democratic basis with a constitution, an elected committee and rules that are agreed by the AGM. The land is owned by Chesterfield Borough Council; the Society leases it and runs it as allotments - this is not a council run website, it is run by the Society on a not-for-profit basis. In addition to gardening, we meet regularly without wellies at the local pub!
Whether you are a complete novice or have years of experience you will receive a warm welcome from our members. We are a well established site near the centre of Hasland, with excellent soil for growing and good facilities on site like a toilet and running water near enough to each plot for carrying watering cans to and fro.
Ask us about available Allotments in Hasland - each year we have some nicely established plots ready to take over from retiring members, as well as areas that need some work and imagination. Some plots come with a shed or greenhouse but no two plots are identical.
The Committee works hard to keep the annual rent down (£15 per plot for 2018-19) so that allotmenteering is available to all! For those who want to start off with half an Allotment in Hasland -we can offer you a suitably sized plot which will be easily manageable, until you find your feet (or wellies).
At the time of writing (Feb 2019) all of our plots are taken and we have a short waiting list. However with a large site like ours we have plots becoming available throughout the year so you will move up the waiting list. New members are always welcomed and advice for new growers is on offer should you need it, from our many experienced growers.
If you are interested in having an allotment with us please contact us through the form below: Please make sure you have thought it through first and considered how much time it will take (at least half a day a week). When you contact us please leave a phone number so that one of our committee members can phone you. We will ask you to meet one of us on site for a tour and to find out what your needs are. Once you have visited the site we can put you on our waiting list.
