Allotment Scheme

EASTHAM ALLOTMENT SCHEME

Enjoy the freshest vegetables - grown in Eastham.

Eastham's allotment scheme provides fresh vegetables grown here throughout the year. Funds from the allotment scheme go back into community projects for the church, village hall and other charities in the village.

The allotments are at Eastham Park tended with loving care by Debbie Powell. Debbie does all the planting, watering, weeding, harvesting and delivery. Everyone has their own allotment, but some vegetables like potatoes are grown in one block, so if you want to "pick your own" that is fine.

Debbie plants all vegetables, potatoes, onion, runner beans, broad beans, green beans, parsnips, marrows, pumpkins, squash... the list is endless as well as a polytunnel with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and lettuce. There are also herbs of many varieties.

Deliveries are done through Eastham with a weekly delivery to Tenbury. The scheme runs through a company Temework Limited and proceeds are distributed to the church, village hall and other charities. The church Temework has distributed over £10,000 since it was set up five years ago first with organic boxes and latterly with the allotment scheme.

Payment is by standing order on a monthly basis. A full allotment works out at £12 and a half allotment at £6 per week. If you want to just do 6 months April to September the cost for a half allotment is £10 per week (40 per month)
