We are raising money for a new cabin. The cabin will have two proper toilets, one of which will have disabled access.
The cabin will also contain the allotment shop, a large storage area and a washing up area for use during "T in the Cabin", Open days and other events. You can support our efforts to raise money by attending "T in the Cabin" which is held on the last Saturday of every month. Alternatively you could click on the Donate button although we would much rather see you at an event.
Aden Allotments are situated in Aden Country Park in Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire. The allotments are run by the plotholders themselves under the name of Aden Community Allotment Association SCIO (ACAA). The allotments can be rented by anyone who lives in the Mintlaw and surrounding area.
