Auchmuty Allotments

Auchmuty Allotments are owned and managed by Fife Council and is one of the smaller sites.  As well as 8 individual plots there is a community plot managed by Community Learning and Development.

Over the years the community plot has provided a growing space for scouts, young carers and supported employment services.

 

If you are interested in becoming a plot holder on any of the Fife Council sites please visit Fife Direct. 

The Community Plot

This year we are working with FIRST at the allotment, what a wet summer it has been so far, we were a bit late in planting this year and we were hoping for some sunshine to boost the plants.  So far we had a fair crop of raspberries and raddishes.  The pigeons enjoyed the cabbage we planted so they have been covered in fleece to encourage new growth.
