WELCOME TO THE SWCAA WEBSITE.....Your first point of contact for allotment advice, information and guidance, no matter what your situation or needs.

We are based in the Southwest of England but cover the whole of the UK, Wales and Northern Ireland and are now one of the largest organisations that offers advice and support to Allotment Holders, Associations/Groups, Schools, Private Landowners and Local Councils.

We offer an efficient, friendly service and have a fresh modern outlook towards allotments and the allotment movement; this has won us thousands of members and supporters across the UK.

Our main aims are to promote allotments, growing your own and the benefits this brings, as well as helping to set up new sites and associations, assisting in protecting those sites that maybe under threat and working with like minded groups and organisations to help get their projects off the ground.  Plus you can be assured that we are just a phone call away if you need assistance with any other allotment related issues.  Unfortunately because of high demand we can only offer in depth assistance to our existing members and please note that we do not get involved in personal disputes of any kind. 

To benefit from all the services we offer just become a member of SWCAA and get FREE allotment insurance cover included with your membership.  Prices start from just £3.50 for groups and £10 for individuals per annum.

Having an allotment is a great way of getting your hands on valuable gardening space and is also a great opportunity to meet fellow allotment holders.  Allotments have a new role to play in the way we live our lives today, not only do they provide us with a place to grow fruit and vegetables they are a place to escape to away from the hassle's of everyday life.

Nothing beats the satisfaction of growing something from seed, to put food on your table and being able to say "I grew that"  So why not check out the allotments in your area and get sowing and growing today!
