Help us turn start an allotment in Tottenham so that local people on means tested benefits without a garden can grow their own food.

Haringey Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We're turning turning the large lawn at 399 Tottenham High Rd N17 6QN into an allotment. We're splitting it into allotment plots for local people on benefit without a garden, so they can grow their own veg and fruit.

What we'll deliver:

  • Garden tools & equipment
  • Veg seeds, herbs, edible climbers
  • Giant waterbutt

Why it's a great idea:

Tottenham is a deprived area. Putting food food on the table, let alone healthy food is not easy when you're on benefit, especially since all the benefit cuts. The waiting list for allotments in Haringey is decades long. You'll be enabling Tottenham people on benefit without a garden to grow their own food.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buy garden tools & equipment
  • Buy veg seeds and herbs
