SAVE Our WELLESBOURNE ALLOTMENTS - S.O.W.A.


Become A Friend Of Wellesbourne Allotments


You do not have to be a plot holder to be involved in the campaign to save our village Allotments for future generations to enjoy. Whilst many do not have the time or inclination to grow their own food, they do however feel passionately about protecting the allotment culture in the UK which has been a part of the British way of life for 100’s of years.

Everyone has a skill they can contribute. From a few hours a year to a few hours every month, Friends of Wellesbourne Allotments play a crucial role in supporting the campaign. Whether it’s a maildrop just to your neighbours in your street, writing a one off letter to our local MP’s to creating articles for publication in the Press, collect petition signatures or helping out at community events like the Street Fayre & Open Days, helping out with site maintenance or supporting projects such as the Dementia Friendly Plot. It all ads up and it all matters. Some Friends provide professional skills or expertise such as Photography, Video, Legal, Planning, IT, Social Media, Graphic Design, Bio-Diversification, etc. We welcome any suggestion you may have.

“When agricultural land, the soil that feeds us and that we regard as our home, becomes a globally tradable commodity and an object of speculation, there’s a lot at stake: our food security, the viability and quality of ecosystems and natural areas, small-scale farming, the economic and cultural cohesion in local communities and regions within Europe, and our society’s intergenerational contract” (Heubuch, 2016, p.4).
