Welcome to Whetstone Stray Allotments, Barnet: a lovely West-facing site with a tranquil rural atmosphere, alongside Dollis Brook.

We are a thriving community of keen gardeners of all ages, abilities and styles.

Like all allotment sites in Barnet, we are self managing and administering.   Our membership is active in maintaining and improving our site as a whole.  Recent communal activities include native hedge and wild flower planting.

Have a look around our website. If you are interested in joining our community, get in touch by email or visit our Trading Hut which is open on Sundays from April – September 10:30-11.30am.  We are also have an award-winning Community Plot with disabled access for local groups  –  please get in touch if you would like to use this or to volunteer on it.

Thank you to Barnet Giving, for a £2,500 grant for the Community Plot for developing the plot with disabled access and planting. We will begin work on this in Winter 2017.
