Growing your own fruit and veg is really popular these days, both for healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle and, with a wide range of vacant allotment plots at the Council’s Accrington and Baxenden allotment sites up for grabs, even more green fingered Hyndburn folk now have the chance to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

Allotment plots available include small, easy manageable raised beds, to the larger allotment plots, where some good healthy digging will be needed, but well worth the reward of eating your own veggies and fruit.

The Council’s allotments are a fantastic place for people to get out and about, meet new people, and enjoying a healthy activity.  Learning how to grow vegetables and fruit and eating your own food is a very rewarding experience.  It’s well documented that growing and allotmenteering is beneficial to mental health, physical health and wellbeing.
