Anyone who lives in Minehead can apply to rent an allotment. 
Cultivating an allotment will provide a source of good quality fresh fruit and vegetables. If grown organically, the food will reduce your family’s exposure to pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.
Allotment gardening is a very rewarding pastime and it makes a valuable contribution to the quality and health of people’s lives, both in terms of providing healthy food to eat, and also providing exercise to allotment-holders. The increased awareness of healthy eating and organic food production, along with a plethora of gardening television programmes, has meant that there are more people seeking allotments than at any time since the ‘Dig For Victory’ campaign in World War II.
There are six sites in Minehead – at Marshfield Road and Harepark Terrace in Alcombe and at Poundfield Road, Periton Way, Periton Lane and Orchard Road. You can view the locations and apply for an allotment by post, in person, or online.
