Do you need some good open-air exercise? Interested in gardening? Do you want to grow your own vegetables or flowers and reduce your carbon footprint. If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then an allotment could be for you. Coventry has allotment sites that are rented to residents of the city.
If you would like to apply for one of the vacant plots, or wish to go on the waiting list for other sites, please contact:
Allotments are not expensive to rent, costing £15 to £35 a year, depending on location and facilities.
If you are in receipt of a qualifying benefit, you would be entitled to a Passport to Leisure and Learning, which would reduce the cost even more.
We do not believe an allotment to be the best possible home for hens or rabbits. If you do choose to keep them, and can give them the care that they need, please see this advice for looking after animals in an evacuation.
