Grow your own in the market
garden of Ulster
Are you concerned about the amount of chemicals in your fruit
and vegetables, want to live a healthy life, take up a new
hobby, or even just relax with the family? If the answer to
any of the above is "Yes" then Ards Allotments could
be your solution.
The increasing pressure on available land in our towns and
cities means that private gardens are becoming smaller and
smaller. The growing number of people who live in apartments
have no garden at all.
At Ards Allotments we provide managed plots where you can
indulge your horticultural ambitions to the full. You will
also be part of a commumity of like-minded people who can
help you get started if you are a novice gardener.
We provide tailor made classes to suit your requirements either at an agreed location or on the plots based on the Comber Road where we have under cover facilities
