Welcome to Warriston Allotments 2023
The 121 plots at Warriston, a large south facing site on the north side of Edinburgh, were created for unemployed families during the depression of the late 1920s.
Thanks to the city's ongoing allotment policy, urban land (there are over 30 separate sites), continues to be dedicated to local growers renting plots on a yearly basis. The waiting time for a plot at Warriston is least 8 years—if you would like to put your name on the list, or find out more, go to City of Edinburgh Council allotment information. Please do not contact Warriston re renting a plot—we are unable to reply to your enquiry as all city allotments are administered and allocated by Edinburgh City Council.
The contact form is for Warriston plot holders only, to share ideas/enquiries/contributions. We regret we cannot reply to enquiries not related specifically to the Warriston site.
Plot holders' news:
Fires are allowed on site from beginning October.
The collective potato & onion order is now closed. Potato & onion delivery: February 2024.
Shredding sessions have begun and are increasingly popular.
Check cottage blackboard for times.
PLEASE DO NOT OVERFILL THE BIN!
If it is overfilled, it will not be picked up. Please keep your rubbish on your plot (not next to the bin) until there is room.
To sign up to the newsletter if you haven't already please contact email@example.com
ENJOY YOUR PLOT IN WINTER: A time to contemplate, plan, have a coffee in the shed, plant up seeds in the greenhouse, make changes and clear up.
WARRISTON Allotments Association Ant Talk & AGM
Warriston AGM 2023
We discussed site activities, providing an overview on the May Plant Sale, Harvest Sunday, potato & onion order, communal area, equipment, woodland, cottage improvements etc.
Thanks to all plot holders who attended, and to contributors—Alice Bain (chair), Alison Hewitt (secretary), Nadia Russell (committee member, talk on bindweed), Andy Jarman (BWARS) talk on ants—a revelation!
Special thanks to Chris Hughes who has resigned as treasurer after 9 years.
We look forward to committee events next year, beginning with delivery of potato & onions in February.
All went well! Even the much needed raid stayed off till we packed up.
Thanks to everyone who baked, made soup, helped put up the gazebo, served, tidied up.
A steady flow of customers gave the cafe a nice buzz.
A successful start for a new slot in the Warriston diary!
Thanks all very much and see you in October for our AGM.
