Having an allotment gives you the opportunity to grow your own fruit, vegetables and flowers and enjoy being out in the fresh air.
There are 34 allotment sites in Harlow.
All allotment sites have water provided and are enclosed by secure hedges and fences.
Some of the allotment sites are managed by the Harlow Allotment Association and are self-managed by the plot holders themselves.
