Welcome to the LEAF Sheffield Allotments!

In these pages, you will find out all about our Sheffield allotments project up on Herries Road, Sheffield 5.

You’ll see what we grow on our allotments, and you’ll meet some of the many characters who choose to come down here and have some fun.Produce from LEAF Allotments

Of course, having an allotment isn’t just about having fun –we have a serious side too.  We aim to help teach local people the advantages and benefits of planting and growing their own fresh vegetables.  From seeds to plates, we like to share everything!

In these pages, you’ll see photos of our allotments, you’ll read accounts and comments from people who actually come down and participate, you can read our very regularly updated ‘blog’ section, you’ll see the odd recipe or two, and you’ll learn about the various other organisations we are partnering with to help share the message:

Get into allotments!  Grow your own!

But it’s not just about growing your own, either.  Here at LEAF, as part of the Sheffield ‘Bee Buddies’ project, we have a number of bee hives, and many of our members have now taken advantage of the free training that was on offer with the project.  We’re learning about bees, but as well, our fellow allotment-holders love them too, because our bees are helping to pollinate their allotments and crops.

2012 is our ‘official’ 11th anniversary year, and throughout the year so far, we’ve had articles in The Sheffield Star, The Sheffield Telegraph and our Horticultural Support Worker, Diane has made various appearances on local TV and radio.  Watch this space as we announce more celebrations to which all are invited.Mitzi on our allotments

And we mustn’t forget our Honourary Vice ChairCat, Mitzi.  She may just look like a cat, but little Mitzi here is much, much more than this.  In her capacity as HVCC, she makes sure that all new visitors are made welcome and helps them feel right at home.

Our Session Times:-

Wednesday 1.00pm – 6.00pm
Thursday 10.00am – 1.00pm
Saturday 10.00am – 6.00pm

Please give Diane a call on the number above -particularly if the weather is bad- to check on our opening times.
