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).
Like most allotment sites, we have a waiting list - however with a large site like ours we have plots becoming available throughout the year. 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 a full day a week in your first year). When you contact us please leave a phone number and your address; we cannot put you on our waiting list without this as our Society rules give preference to residents of Hasland and its surrounding area.
When a plot becomes available we will ask you to meet one of us on site for a tour and to show you what is available.
