Working Party – Sat 21st July – for 2 hours. 1pm to 3pm.

SATURDAY 21ST – 1PM to 3PM. Meet at the Committee Rooms at the Hut.

Our monthly Working Party/Working Bee to help clear and tidy the communal areas of the Allotment, is back again this Saturday.

This week we need some helpers with the painting of the Committee Room, in preparation for the Nunhead Art Trail Exhibition. There are also some other bits and bobs to do, if we get enough people to help.

It would be lovely to see some new people – it’s only 2 hours! And we have tea and coffee and lovely things to eat, as a huge thank you.






The Stuart Road Allotments will be holding an exhibition in our Hut for the Nunhead Art Trail on the 29th and 30th September.

This is a call for Allotment Members to put their names forward as being interested in participating. That is, being part of a group of artists exhibiting and/or selling their works in the Allotment Hut (Shop and Committee Room).

Please drop us an email:

We are collecting numbers of interested people in the first instance, and will be forwarding more information, application forms and terms of entry in the coming weeks.


As part of the Nunhead Art Trail we will be exhibiting Scarecrows that have been submitted as entries in our Scarecrow Competition!

The competition will be judged at our Annual Harvest BBQ in early September.

More details coming – but put on your thinking hats….or scarecrow hats….


Stuart Road Street Party Sunday 3rd June

As part of the 100th Anniversary celebration events, the allotments will be hosting a stall at the Stuart Road Street Party on Sunday 3rd June. Our stall is planned to run from 1pm through to 4pm.

We would love some help on the stall, volunteers and plants. Signs are up on the gates with further information.

If you’re interested please get in touch. It should be a fabulous day, and the more the merrier.

On our Waiting List and wanting to garden in the meantime?

We have had contact from TWO LOCAL community gardens – asking for assistance:

  • St Mary’s Frobisher Gardening Group
  • Dulwich Veg Garden

St Mary’s Frobisher Gardening Group

The St Mary’s Frobisher Gardening Group have permission for a community gardening group to develop the 5 grow boxes at the back of the park, as well as some surrounding beds.

If you are interested in being involved, please join their facebook page:

Dulwich Vegetable Garden

Dulwich Vegetable Garden (DVG) is an organic community fruit & veg garden behind Rosebery Lodge in Dulwich Park, set up to inspire and encourage people to grow their own. It’s run by volunteers, with whom the produce is shared. The garden is open every Wednesday and Sunday, 10.30-12.30 except from 1 November to the end of February when it’s only open on Sundays (come rain, shine or public holiday). Everyone is welcome.


Compost – NO Communal Compost heap


Please be aware that the Allotments do NOT HAVE  a communal compost heap.

If you have been adding your weeds to a large heap behind the polytunnel – please stop immediately! We are not sure where this rumour came from, but we’ve never had a communal compost area.

Composts are welcomed and encouraged- however they are the responsibility for each plot holder to maintain on their own plot. Alternatively you need to take all your rubbish home, as per the Rules on the Society.
