Portsmouth Community Allotment

About the Community Allotment

The community allotment is a council project that has been running since 2002 and has made an important contribution to improving the health and wellbeing of many Portsmouth residents.


The community allotment has four plots (with disabled access), two poly tunnels and a training pod. For over ten years this community project has offered training, confidence building, volunteering opportunities, a therapeutic environment and a shared appreciation of growing things.     


Portsmouth residents can get involved in the community allotment themselves - health and social care departments can also make referrals.     


Community or school groups can access the allotment for visits and learning workshops too.     


Further information about the history of the community allotment can be found in the following document on the Portsmouth City Council website - 10 Years of the community allotment at Milton Piece.

Allotment Buddies Scheme

Need some help?

Are you struggling with your plot? Do you just need a little extra help to get you back on track? Going on holiday and would like your plot to be watered and weeded? Or would you like a long term co-worker? 


Allotment Buddies may be able to help. Support can vary depending on your requirements – maybe one-off help or continuous support e.g. planting and sowing. We’re based at the Community Allotment on Milton Piece (down the tarmac track from the Shop towards the toilets and Langstone Harbour). 


Anyone interested in the scheme can either contact Gail directly:

If you are an existing plot holder pick up a leaflet from the allotment shop, or visit the Community Allotment at Milton Piece on a Wednesday afternoon – 12.30-3pm.
